Asked Nov 25, 2019

Which of the following is/are correct?
1. A paramagnetic substance is attracted to a magnetic field
2. Atoms with one or more unpaired electrons are paramagnetic
3. Electrons spin is quantized



Expert Answer

Step 1

1) A paramagnetic substance is attracted to a magnetic field is not correct.

Reason: - Paramagnetic materials have a small, positive susceptibility to magnetic fields. These materials are slightly attracted by a magnetic field and the material does not retain the magnetic properties when the external field is removed.

Step 2

2) Atoms with one or more unpaired electrons are paramagnetic, are not correct.

Reason: - A paramagnetic electron is an unpaired electron. An atom is considered paramagnetic if even ...
