a. the five d-orbitals(dz2,dx2-y2, dxy, dxy,dyz)on the central transition metal of complex ions, not used to form covalent bonds to the ligands, have the same energy prior to bonding to the ligands. draw 3 seperate energy diagrams that illustrate what happens to the energy of each of the five equivalent d-orbitals as the electrons of the lone pairs of the ligands approach the central metal to form covalent bonds for each of the following geometries: octahedral, tetrahedral, suqare planar

b. define paramagnetism

c. what is the definition of diamagnetism
