Paramagnetism refers to molecules that possess unpaired electrons; such species tend to move into a magnetic field.

How can we apply paramagnetism in chemistry 14A? Can someone possible provide an example? I would appreciate it!!

Well in chem 14A when you are doing electron configurations and you are writing down spins in each subshell, subshells with two paired spins are diamagnetic but if even one subshell has one unpaired spin then the whole atom is considered paramagnetic.
