We are asked to identify the number of stereoisomers for [Pt(NH3)2Cl2] which has a square planar geometry.
Isomers are compounds with the same molecular formula but different structures.
Stereoisomers are compounds where atoms are connected in the same order.
In order to determine the number of stereoisomers in [Pt(NH3)2Cl2], we must first draw its molecular geometry- square planar.
Indicate how many stereoisomers are possible for each compound.
square planar [Pt(NH3)2Cl2]
