1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Mn+2 has a higher magnetic moment than Fe+2 but practically Fe+2 is ferromagnetic right? So more magnetic right? 2. Relevant equations ## μ = √ (n(n+1))## 3. The attempt at a solution For the Mn ion it comes to be √35 and for the ferrous ion √25 So yes Mn+2 is more paramagnetic but Fe+2 is more magnetic as a solid right? I really don't know why Could it be the alligator of the atoms in the solid?
