Textbook Problem

Give the formula of the coordination complex formed from one Co3+ ion, two ethylenediamine molecules, one water molecule, and one chloride ion. Is the complex neutral or charged? If charged, give the net charge on the ion.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The formula of the given coordination complex has to be predicted.

Concept introduction:

Formula of coordination compounds: Formula of a coordination complex is able to predict by using the metal ion and ligands, and to derive the oxidation number of the coordinated metal ion.

Explanation

Given:Metal ion : Co3+Ligands:TwoEthylenediaminerepresentedas(en)2onechlorideionrepresentedasCl-onewatermoleculerepresentedasH2OOverallchargeofthecomplex:[Co(en)2(H2O)Cl]+2

The oxidation number of metal ion is +3, the charge of the water and two ethylenediamine molecules are neutral (carries no charge) but the charge of chloride ion is -1
