and a crystal field splitting diagram for [CoF]. Label each diagram as either strong field or weak field. Your diagram should include the d-electrons. 

c) Label each diagram in answer (b) as either high spin or low spin

d) Given the ligand, F- which crystal field is expected? (Strong or weak)

e) If the ligand, NH3 was used instead of F- would you expect a greater Doct or a smaller Doct?

f) Determine the crystal field stabilization energy (CFSE) for [CoF6]3- in terms of the octahedral splitting parameter and the pairing energy for both the strong field and the weak field.

Strong field CFSE  =

Weak field CFSE =
