    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Consider the reaction that produces [tex] [MCl_{6}]^{3 - }[/tex] thus:
    [tex][M(H_{2}O)_{6}]^{2 + } + 6 Cl^{ - } \leftrightarrow [M(Cl)_{6}]^{2 + } + 6H_{2}O[/tex]
    where [tex]M = Cr, Mn \text{ or } Fe[/tex]. Ascertain the stability of complexes.
    Also, determine the order of [tex]K_{eq}[/tex] values when the reaction is carried out with these three metals.

    2. Relevant equations

    I guess we can use the fact that [tex]\Delta_{o} = \frac{hc}{\lambda}[/tex]

    3. The attempt at a solution
