The current spdf and MO modeling of chemical molecules are well-established, but do so by continuing to assume that non-classical physics is operating. The MCAS electron orbital model is an alternate particulate model based on classical physics. This paper describes its application to the diatomic molecules of the second period of the periodic table. In doing so, it addresses their molecular electrostatics, bond strengths, ionization potentials and electron affinities. Particular attention is given to the anomalies of the carbon diatom. Questions are raised about the sensibleness of the spdf model’s spatial ability to contain two electrons on an axis between diatoms and its ability to form pi-bonds from parallel p-orbitals located over the nuclei of each atom. Nitrogen, oxygen, and fluorine all have the same inter-nuclei bonding: all “triple bonds” of varying strength caused by non-bonding electrons.
