Q. 28

In the following questions two or more options may be correct.

Diamagnetic species are those which contain no unpaired electrons. Which among the following are dimagnetic?

A. N2

B. N22-

C. O2

D. O22-

Answer :

Diamagnetic species have no unpaired electrons in the molecular orbital. These species repel the magnetic field.

The N2 molecule has no unpaired electron in the valence shell/molecular orbital. Thus, it is diamagnetic in nature.


N22- and O2 have unpaired electron so they are paramagnetic in nature.
