Is Zn+2 diamagnetic or paramagnetic? I am a little confused on how to figure this out and I'm finding inconsistent answers when I tried to look this up.
Look up or configure yourself the electron structure of Zn^+2.
1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 3d10 . Since there are no unpaired electrons it is diamagnetic.
