Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Miaow on Sunday, May 13, 2012 at 12:06pm.

Working on a practice question for finals so I really want to understand how this works:

What is the coordination number of mercury in K2[HgI4]?

I say that mercury's coordination number is 4 because I^- is a monodentate ligand.

Does the potassium affect the coordination number at all? Thanks for any insight.
