Unformatted text preview: 531.42 nm 478.32 nm 517 nm 545 nm 492 nm Absorbance: .606 2.140 0.125 0.099 0.299 Color of solution: magenta orange light pink pink light pink The Spectrochemical Series-<-< -< < Br Cl F H2O NH3 Evaluation of Results: • Given that -Br will absorb the longest wavelength according to the spectrochemical series, -Br would be Complex D. And given that NH3 will absorb the shortest wavelength, NH3 would be Complex B. Therefore leaving Complexes A, C, and E which were also determined using the spectrochemical series. Complex A was -Cl , Complex C was -F and Complex E was determined as H2O . Final Conclusions: • In conclusion by using the data obtained in the second week’s experiment and the spectrochemical series the five cobalt complexes were determined as follows: 1. Complex A = -Cl 2. Complex B = NH3 3. Complex C = -F 4. Complex D = -Br 5. Complex E = H2O...
