Paramagnetism

Postby Adriana Muro 1A » Sun Dec 04, 2016 12:29 pm

How are we supposed to tell when something is paramagnetic or diamagnetic? Do we have to write out bond order and electron configuration to find out?

It helps to write out the electron configuration because you can clearly see when there are unpaired elctrons that would make the molecule paramagnetic meaning it's attracted to magnets. A bond order that has a .5 is also an indicator of paramagnetism.
