  • Tetrahedral
  • Octahedral

3. The stability constant is

  • The equilibrium constant for an equilibrium existing between a transition metal ion surrounded by water ligands and the complex formed when the same ion has undergone a ligand substitution
  • [Cu(NH3)4(H2O)2]2+(aq) + 4H2O(l) (pale blue-->dark blue)

4. Co2+ ions are pink in solution, and when they react with NaOH they form

  • Blue precipitates (coltalt(II)hydroxide), turning beige in the presence of air
  • Green turning rusty brown in air

  • Octahedral
  • Distorted octahedral
  • Tetrahedral

I'm sorry about the last comment, my friend wrote it because he didn't want to accept that he got some answers wrong in this quiz. I just got 100% on this quiz and with it It helped enhance my knowledge on Transition Metals as a whole. Keep up with the resources guys!!!
