Question

Amongst the following ions which one has the highest magnetic moment value?

(i) [Cr(H2O)6]3+

(ii) [Fe(H2O)6]2+

(iii) [Zn(H2O)6]2+

Open in App
Solution

(i) No. of unpaired electrons in [Cr(H2O)6]3+ = 3

Then, μ

(ii) No. of unpaired electrons in [Fe(H2O)6]2+ = 4

Then, μ

(iii) No. of unpaired electrons in [Zn(H2O)6]2+ = 0

Hence, [Fe(H2O)6]2+ has the highest magnetic moment value.
