Q. 285.0( 1 Vote )

Which of the foll A. Ti3+

B. Mn2+

C. Fe2+

D. Co3+

Answer :

Mn2+ (3d5) and Fe2+(3d6) have more number of unpaired electrons 5 and 4 than Ti3+(3d1) and Co3+(3d7) which have only 1 and 3 unpaired electrons.


Magnetic moment =


Where n is the number of unpaired electrons.


Magnetic moment for all elements:


Mn2+ = =5.91


Fe2+= =2.89


Ti3+==1.73


Co3+==3.87


Greater the value of n, greater the magnetic moment.


So, Mn2+ has the highest magnetic moment
