how do we calculate magnetic moment???????????????

Expert Answer:

The formula used to calculate the spin-only magnetic moment are:

 μ= √n(n+2) B.M.

 where n = number of unpaired electrons


μ= √4S(S+1) B.M.

 where S = electron spin quantum number

 Note: For each unpaired electron, n=1 and S=1/2
