diamagnetism and paramagnetism

Postby Daniel_Frees_1L » Tue Nov 27, 2018 6:53 pm

What are diamagnetism and paramagnetism? And do we need to know them for the test?

I believe diamagnetism is when a molecule has no unpaired electrons and thus is not attracted to a magnetic field. The opposite is true for paramagnetism, in which the molecule is attracted to an outside magnetic field due to its unpaired electrons.

Another note is that paramagnetic compounds are radicals because they possess an unpaired electron.
