The magnetic moment of


The magnetic moment of [MnCl4]2– is 5.92 BM. Explain giving a reason.


A magnetic moment of 5.92 BM means there are 5 unpaired electrons because

Magnetic Moment = √ n(n+2)

The geometry tetrahedral with 5 unpaired electrons giving a magnetic moment of 5.92 BM as the four ligands are attached to Mn2+.
