FREE Expert Solution

Name the element described in the following: Period 4 transition element that forms 3+ diamagnetic ion.

The period 4 transition elements are:

Recall:

s orbital  can hold a maximum of 2 electrons
p orbitals → can hold a maximum of 6 electrons
d orbitals → can hold a maximum of 10 electrons
f orbitals → can hold a maximum of 14 electrons


Let's check each element when they lose 3 electrons to have a +3 charge:
