Answer :

Co2+ has electronic configuration of 3d7 and Cr3+ has electronic configuration of 3d3. Both have the same number of unpaired electrons, i.e 3.

Magnetic moment =

Where n is the number of unpaired electrons. So for Cr3+ and Co2+ , the number of unpaired electrons equals 3.

Magnetic moment = = 3.87 B.M
