Unformatted text preview: [Co(NH 3 ) 5 Cl] 2+ , [Co(NH 3 ) 5 NH 3 ] 3+ , [Co(NH 3 ) 5 H 2 O] 3+ , [Co(NH 3 ) 5 Br] 2+ , and [Co(NH 3 ) 5 F] 2+ , respectively. However, the fact that the complexes in solution had colors that differed from the colors suggested by their wavelengths of maximum absorbance shows the possibility of error being present. Also, varying readings for the wavelength of maximum absorbance for complex C suggests that complex C may be better described as having the identity assigned to complex E, and complex E may be better described as having the identity assigned to complex C....
