I have added new content to the bond order calculator mentioned at https://irthoughts.wordpress.com/2018/12/20/bond-order-calculator-tool/
The content added is to illustrate the risks of blindly relying on chemistry heuristics and old-school chemistry ideas. Essentially, it is debunked some few old-school chemistry ideas, like
- SO3 has a bond order of 2. Really?
- nitrogen cannot form five bonds. Really?
- octet rule expansion by means of using d orbitals. Really?
- bond order is the number of chemical bonds shared by two atoms. Really?

Once there, navigate to the ‘What is computed?’ section, and then to the subsection ‘Beware of Blindly Relying on Chemistry Heuristics’.
