Problem: Sort the following atom or ions as paramagnetic or diamagnetic according to the electron configurations determined in Part A.C, Ni, S2−, Au+, KTo use electron configuration to explain magnetic behavior. An important property that results from the electron configuration of an atom or an ion is behavior in the presence of an external magnetic field. Due to the random orientations of electron spins most materials have no permanent magnetic effect without an external magnetic field.
