Question

Out of Mn3+ and Cr3+, which is more paramagnetic and why ?

(Atomic nos. : Mn = 25, Cr = 24)

Solution 1

Mn+3 = [Ar] 4s0 3d4 (4 unpaired e-)

Cr+3 = [Ar] 4s0 3d3 (3 unpaired e-)

Mn+3 has more no. of unpaired e- than Cr+3

Solution 2

Mn3+ has four unpaired electrons (d4) in its valence shell whereas Cr3+ (d3) has three unpaired electrons. Thus, Mn3+ is more paramagnetic than Cr3+.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
