Worksheet: Paramagnetic Molecules

In this worksheet, we will practice describing paramagnetic molecules and the electronic properties that make them paramagnetic.


Which of the following complex ions could be represented by the crystal field splitting diagram shown?

  • AParamagnetic [Fe(CN)]63+
  • BParamagnetic [Fe(HO)]262+
  • CDiamagnetic [Co(NH)]363+
  • DParamagnetic [FeCl]63+
  • EDiamagnetic [CoF]62+


Which of the following has the highest melting point?

  • ARhodium
  • BMolybdenum
  • CSilver
  • DCadmium
  • EThe melting points would be equivalent, because they are in the same period.
