    \[Magnetic \space moment = \sqrt{n(n+2)}\] 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 :)

    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 ?

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

    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+
