Concept

Problem: For each metal complex, give the coordination number for the metal species. 

FREE Expert Solution

We’re asked to determine the coordination number of the metal species within each complex. Remember two things:

  • Molecules such as H2O, NH3, or ethylenediamine (en) are neutral, so their charge is 0.
  • Atoms like Cl or Br are from group 7A and are anions, so they have a -1 charge.
