The paper concerns a theoretical model to calculate the number of allowed states for the electrons in the diatomic molecules through the quantum-statistical analysis of the phase space. The approach is a straightforward extension of that already discussed in the case of many-electron atoms. Simple formulae are derived that enable to calculate the dissociation energy, bond length and vibrational frequency of diatomic molecules in a good agreement with the experimental data.
