I. [Cr(NH3)6]3+

II. [CrCI6]3-

III. [Cr(H2O)6]3+
IV. [Cr(CN)6]3-

is :

Solution:

Stronger ligand causes greater splitting between two energy levels.

The energy of light absorbed is more and the wavelength of light absorbed is less for the stronger ligand.

Hence order of wavelength absorption will be reverse of the order of the strength of ligands.

Hence A is correct.

QUESTION: 16

Comprehension Type

Direction (Q. Nos. 16 and 17) This section contains a paragraph, describing theory, experiments, data, etc. Two questions related to the paragraph have.

Passage

In octahedral complexes due to repulsion between the ligands and d-orbitals, there is splitting of d-orbitals into two sets, i.e. two orbitals of higher energy called eg and three orbitals of lower energy called t2g. The difference of energy between the two sets of d-orbitals is called crystal field stabilisation energy denoted by Δo. For any given metal cation, the magnitude of Δo depends on the nature of ligands.

Q.

The CFSE for d7 configuration for strong ligand field is

Solution:

The total crystal field stabilisation energy is given by CFSE(octahedral) = are the number of electron occupying the t2g and eg orbitatls respectively.
For d7 in strong field,

CFSE = -0.4 x 6 + 0.6 x 1 = -2.4 + 0.6 = -1.8Δo

QUESTION: 17

In octahedral complexes due to repulsion between the ligands and d-orbitals, there is splitting of d-orbitals into two sets, i.e. two orbitals of higher energy called eg and three orbitals of lower energy called t2g. The difference of energy between the two sets of d-orbitals is called crystal field stabilisation energy denoted by Δo. For any given metal cation, the magnitude of Δo depends on the nature of ligands.
