Textbook Problem

According to ligand field theory, what is the force of attraction between a metal and a ligand in a coordination complex?

Interpretation The force of attraction between a metal and a ligand using ligand field theory has to be determined.

Interpretation Introduction

Concept introduction:

Ligand field theory: It is used to explain the bonding between metal and ligand in a coordination complex.

Ligand field theory explains the bonding in a coordination complex in terms of electrostatic interaction of between metal ion and ligands.

Explanation

Ligand field theory is used to explain the bonding between metal and ligand in a coordination complex. The d orbitals of metal ion or atom in a complex have different energies because of the repulsion force occurs between the electrons in the d orbit...
