Step 1

Paramagnetic substances are the substances that contain unpaired electrons. These unpaired electrons behave as tiny-magnets in the presence of the magnetic field and as a result, the paramagnetic substances are attracted towards the magnetic field.

Diamagnetic substances are the substances that do not contain unpaired electrons. These substances are strongly repelled by the magnetic field.

The paramagnetic or diamagnetic behavior of the substance is determined on the basis of the presence of unpaired electrons in the molecular orbital diagram of that substance.

Step 2

The molecular orbital electronic configurations of O2 and N2 gas are written as,

O2 = (σ1s)2(σ*1s)2 (σ2s)2(σ*2s)2(σ2pz)2(π2px)2(π2py)2(π*2px)1(π2py)1

N2 = (σ1s)2(σ*1s)2 (σ2s)2(σ*2s)2(π 2px)2(π2py)2(σ 2pz)2

Hence, O2 molecule contains unpaired electrons and N2 contains only paired electrons in its molecular orbital electronic configuration.

Step 3

The substance shown in picture 1 is attracted towards the magnetic field which means it is paramagn...
