# The degenerate orbitals of

Question:

The degenerate orbitals of $\left[\mathrm{Cr}\left(\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}\right)_{6}\right]^{3+}$ are :

1. $\mathrm{d}_{\mathrm{yz}}$ and $\mathrm{d}_{\mathrm{z}^{2}}$

2. $\mathrm{d}_{z^{2}}$ and $\mathrm{d}_{\mathrm{xz}}$

3. $d_{x z}$ and $d_{y z}$

4. $d_{x^{2}-y^{2}}$ and $d_{x y}$

Correct Option: , 3

Solution:

Degenerate orbitals of $\left[\mathrm{Cr}\left(\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}\right)_{6}\right]^{3+}$

Hence according to the options given, degenerate orbitals are $\mathrm{d}_{\mathrm{xz}} \& \mathrm{~d}_{\mathrm{yz}}$
