To calculate the charge on the complex → the oxidation numbers of the species are added.
Thus, the charge on the complex is calculated as:
What is the charge on each of the following complex ions?
A. tetraaquairon(II), [Fe(H2O)6]?
B. tris(carbonato)ferrate(III), [Fe(CO3)3]?
C. diaquatetrachlorovanadate, [V(H2O)2Cl4]?
