Question

# The magnetic nature of elements depends on the presence of unpaired electrons. Identify the configuration of the transition element, which shows the highest magnetic moment.3d73d53d83d2

Solution

## The correct option is B 3d53d5 has the maximum number of unpaired electrons i.e., 5. Hence, it shows highest magnetic moment. μ=√n(n+2) where μ= magnetic moment and n= No. of unpaired electrons.
