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.
  1. 3d7
  2. 3d5
  3. 3d8
  4. 3d2


Solution

The correct option is B 3d5
3d5 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.
