Re: Ligands

A ligand is any molecule or ion that can donate a lone pair of electrons to a transition metal ion to form a covalent bond.Ligands must have one or more lone pairs of electrons. Ligands may be neutral or charge

Re: Oxidation Number

An atom is said to have a nonzero net charge only when it either loses or gains electrons to become an ion.
Ionic charge >3+, 3-
Charge on an atom inside a compound
Oxidation number >+3, -3

polarity does affect solubility in water, because like dissolves like. If the substance is polar it will dissolve well, and if it is nonpolar, the substance will not dissolve as well.

Re: Ligand and coordination sphere

Ligands are ions or neutral molecules that bond to a central metal atom or ion. Ligands act as Lewis bases (electron pair donors), and the central atom acts as a Lewis acid. Ligands have at least one donor atom with an electron pair used to form covalent bonds with the central atom.

find the max electrons in an atom
n=2 , l=1, ml=1, ms=+1/2
the answer is that there is 1 electron why is that.
I know that when there is 1 ml then that means there is 2 electrons. does ms make it 1 electron?

Re: Suggestions for Balancing Reactions

For me the best way to balance equations is writing each element on the side and counting it. Take one step at a time looking at the one which looks the simplest.
To make sure that the equations balanced I just count each element again to reassure.
