Assume all ligands have the same bond length: Rh(PPh3)3Cl (square planar); [CuCl4]2-(square planar); Rh(PMe3)4(tetrahedral); Pt(NH3)2Cl2(square planar); [CuCl4]3-(tetrahedral).2) For each of the following compounds: i) Give the oxidation state of the metal, d electron count, and fill in the crystal field diagram
