The highest value of the calculated spin only magnetic moment
Question:

The highest value of the calculated spin only magnetic moment (in BM) among all the transition metal complexes is :

  1. 5.92

  2. 6.93

  3. 3.87

  4. 4.90


Correct Option:

Solution:

Magnetic moment, $\mu=\sqrt{n(n+2)} \mathrm{BM}$ (where, $n=$ no. of unpaired electrons)

As transition metal atom/ion in a complex may have unpaired electrons ranging from zero to 5 . So, maximum number of unpaired electrons that may be present in a complex is 5 .

$\therefore$ Maximum value of magnetic moment among all the transition metal complexes is
