Classify as paramagnetic or diamagnetic each of the following species, as found in their ground state: He, Be, C, Na, Na + . 3. (a) Without consulting any reference materials, compare 4 Be and 3 Li. Estimate for each of the electrons found in the ground state of the neutral molecule the Z eff which is active; answers of the form “between 3.4 and 3.7” would provide the appropriate level of approximation. Suggest which electron(s) of the 7 listed would have lowest ionization energies; if you list
