Hello all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is not a homework problem. Just to understand the two doubly degenerate mode of D4h symmetry i wanted to make sample calculation. Pt in the middle of a square formed by 4 Cl atoms. PtCl_{4}has square planar structure (AB_{4}) molecule.

1. What is the whole charge of PtCl_{4}? Is this [tex]-2[/tex] ?

2. Multiplicity of Pt ? Multiplicity = [2S+1] where S is spin state of Pt.

thanks.
