\[Magnetic \space moment = \sqrt{n(n+2)}\] where n>number of unpaired electron :)

@Ruchi. \[1.73 = \sqrt{n(n+2)}\] Therefore n = 1 Therefore number of unpaired electron = 1 Now try to finish it off :)

@Ruchi. , substitute n=1 and see in the formula :P

1.73 = sqrt(3) = sqrt(n(n+2)) So, n(n+2) = 3 or n = 1 For V, Z = 23, [Ar]4s23d3 am i right.

Yes. @Ruchi, now tell me if Vanadium has 3 unpaired electrons, and you know that the vanadium ion is having 1 unpaired electron, then now can you figure out the charge on vanadium ion :)

@Ruchi. , This question is more intersesting now :P. Let me have a check and let you know the electron configuration.

@Ruchi. Your task is to get a vanadium ion with 1 unpaired electron . Now a simple question to you , first where will you remove the electron from vanadium first ?? s orbital or p orbital ?

Typo ; I meant 3s orbital or 3d orbital ??

Ruchi, The configuration you gave for V4+ is wrong. Think why ?? (tip:check the number of electrons is 4s orbital )

shivam_bhallaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
You should always mention 4s 0 while writing the V4+ configuration. So you are partially right @Ruchi.

Revise aufbau principle @ruchi. Remove 2 electrons from 4s orbital, then 2 electrons from 3d orbital to get V4+
