"Determine the charge on the complex:
I'm having problems even writing a formula for this one! Is it [Co(2)(NH2CH2CH2NH2)Cl]Cl ??? Maybe if I could figure out the formula I'd be better at figuring out the charge.
I may not write it in the proper order but the formula is
the diaqua means (H2O)2
dichloro means Cl2
ethylenediamine means (en)
Co(III) means Co^3+.
The only charges are 3+ for Co, 1- each for chloro and that's it. en is neutral. H2O is neutral.
YAY! Thanks, that was a tough one.
Formula didn't matter so much as figuring out the charge. +1 was it! You were a wonderful help, as always!
