(a) [2 points] Predict the color of this complex. Orange(b) [2 points] If the cobalt ion adopts a low spin configuration draw the crystal-field energy-level diagram and show the placement of the d-electrons? (c) [4 points] Calculate the crystal field splitting energy, Δ, in eV. E = hc/λ = (6.626 ×10–34J-s)(3.00 ×108m/s)/(470 ×10–9m) = 4.23 ×10–19J E = (4.23 ×10–19J) ×(1 eV/1.602 ×10–19J) = 2.64 eV (d) [2 points] Would you expect the absorption maximum of [Co(H2O)6]3+to fall at a longer or at a shorter wavelength (assume low spin configuration is maintained)? According to the spectrochemical series H2O is a weaker field ligand that NH3....
