listed in this link the affinity of atomic nitrogen, not diatomic.

Quite.

The internet is a wonderful tool.

Or, perhaps the OP could go directly to the manufacturer and ask.

I'd be curious to know if divine intervention or the internet is more productive.

Do you mean proton affinity?

What a great question for an internet search engine! Go for it.

Generally speaking, the nitrogen atomss are already locked in a "triple bond" and do not need any energy applied to them, in order for the atoms N- - - -N that have an affinity.

If you are referring to electron affinitiy of nitrogen is does vary widely from nitrogen gas, to ammonia, and so on down the line, because we have thus chosen for this to be filled with other compound, it may still majorly depend on nitrogen atomic value (unless something changes the chemical environment of the nitrogen atoms in compound applied.

As far as I now N2 is a nitrogen MOLECULE which is very stable and has no affinity as long as it is not split in ions which of course can have affinities to other atoms and build compounds as NO2 Or other.

The question could be reformulated in : which is the energy required to activate the molecule by splitting it in 2 ions N+ with several free potential connections.
