  1. electron configuration is d^8. Geometry is square planar. Give examples of C.N., hybridization, and examples.
    C.N. is 4. Hybridization is dsp^2. examples are Ni+2, Cu+3, Pt+2
  2. d^10 or d^5 electron configuration. Geometry is tetrahedral. Give hybridization , examples, and C.N.
    sp^3, Cu+1, Zn+2, Mn+2, with a C.N. of 4
  3. d^1-d^9 electron configuration. Geometry is octahedral. Give C.N.
    C.N. 6. Hybridization varies and a lot of examples.
  4. Octahedral 3-2 split (down to up).For strong ligands What's the spin and electron pairing?
    low spin and electrons pairing up. CN-, NH(2)^-, NO(2)^-
  5. Octahedral 3-2 spit(down to up). For weak ligands, What's the spin and electron pairing?
    high spin and electrons won't pair up. H20, NH3, X-
  6. Tetrahedral 2-3 (down to up). For strong ligands,  what's the spin and electron pairing?
    CN-, NH(2)-, NO(2)-. Low spin and electrons pair up. 
  7. Tetrahedral 2-3 (down to up). For weak ligands,  what's the spin and electron pairing?
    H2O, NH3, X-. High spin and electrons do NOT pair. 
  8. Name the weaker ligands
    I-, Cl-, F-, OH-, H20, halogens and oxygen
  9. stong ligands are
    NH3, en, NO(2)-, CN-, CO, Nitrogen, Carbon
