Determining Paramagnetism

Postby Marvin Lu 1E » Fri Oct 30, 2015 12:10 am

Are you able to determine if a molecule is paramagnetic without having to draw out the Molecular Orbital?

Well I just draw it in my mind... but it will be helpful if you write the electron configuration out(which is much less work).

I think it would be easier to draw out the MO diagram so you don't miss anything, but i think the more problems you do then you'll be able to do it in your head faster or just write out the electron configuration like the person above said^^
