## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello all,

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

1. What is the whole charge of PtCl

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

thanks.

_{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.
