In group 16 elements which of one is paramagnetic while others are not???
Bro paramagnetic is nature of element..it means whther it has attraction repusion both or zero moment..
What is paramagnetic?
Magnetic nature is observed in a molecule not in an atom. It depends upon the no of electrons in the molecule. Calculate the bond order using the moed diagram and then the molecule with the bond other 1,2,3 exhibits diamagnetic nature and the rest are all paramagnetic. Hope this helps. Bond order = 1/2 (no of electrons in bonding orbital-no of electrons in antibonding electrons)
