Determining how Paramagnetic an atom is

Postby Jonathan Browne 2A » Thu Oct 29, 2015 8:02 pm

How do you determine if one atom is more paramagnetic than another atom? For example, if you were to determine between Oxygen and Nitrogen?

The more unpaired electrons that an element has in its orbitals the more paramagnetic the element becomes.
