Unformatted text preview: known to increase in the following order if the metal ion is kept constant: Br-< Cl-< F-< H 2 O < NH 3 Therefore, the identity of each unknown complex was determined by arranging them by decreasing wavelength, D > A > C > B > E because energy (crystal field splitting) is inversely related to wavelength according to ∆ o = hc l . Conclusion: It was concluded that A was [Co(NH 3 )Cl] 2+ , B was [Co(NH 3 )H 2 O] 3+ , C was [Co(NH 3 )F] 2+ , D was [Co(NH 3 )Br] 2+ , and E was [Co(NH 3 )NH 3 ] 3+ ....
