In contrast, molecular nitrogen, \(N_2\), has no unpaired electrons and is diamagnetic; it is therefore unaffected by the magnet. Diamagnetic. Recall that paramagnetic means it contains at least one unpaired electron and diamagnetic is the lack thereof. O2 is paramagnetic, with one. Paramagnetism is due to the presence of at least one unpaired electron in the molecule. The molecules of simple paramagnetic compounds usually contain odd.

You should be able to figure this out from here. Right so that’s like a tiny magnet with its own magnetic field. What is the electron configuration for a sodium ion? How many unpaired electrons are found in bromine atoms? What is the electron configuration for a nitride ion?

Does that mean it’s a weaker bond? Let me change colors here. And then we have, we’re in the 2p1 and then 2p2. So we put those in.


So while the sodium atom is paramagnetic, the sodium, I misspelled that. Electron configuration for f block element Nd. You can reuse this answer Creative Commons License.

Magnetic Type for all the elements in the Periodic Table

Electron configurations for the third and fourth periods. And then we have 3s1.

Therefore, O has 2 unpaired electrons. Therefore, Br has 1 unpaired electron. The sodium ion paramwgnetik diamagnetic. Whether a compound can be ferromagnetic or not depends on its number of unpaired electrons and on its atomic size.

Are #N_2# and #N_2^+# paramagnetic or diamagnetic? Which one has the stronger bond?

References Pettrucci, Ralph H. Right so we have the 3s orbital right here. Let’s look at the definition for diamagnetic.

Which one has the stronger bond? Let’s say we have two electrons and each of our electrons has spin up. We’ll notice one unpaired electron.

Paramagnetism and diamagnetism

Look for unpaired electrons There is one unpaired electron. Then we have 2s2.

If you write in orbital notation. The B atom has 2s 2 2p 1 as the electron configuration. And so this part’s gonna go up. Let’s start with helium. So I’m assuming you already know how to write your electron configurations. Hund’s Rule states that electrons must occupy every pzramagnetik singly before any orbital is doubly occupied. Draw the valence orbitals Step 3: Two in the 2s orbital.


And let’s look at the definition for paramagnetic.

So we just called diamagneetik the spin quantum number. An unpaired electron means paramagnetic. Chlorine Atoms Step 1: And so we have. And so this would be pulled down into the magnetic field and so our paramagnetic sample is pulled into the magnetic field. Draw the valence orbitals Ignore the core electrons and focus on the valence electrons only.
