Why is FeO(s) not formed in the stchiometric composition?
Asked by Preethu S | 14th Oct, 2014, 08:38: PM
In FeO crystals some Fe2+ cations are replaced by Fe3+ ions. Two Fe3+ ions replaces two Fe2+ ions to make up for the loss of positive charge. Due to this there is less amount of metal as compared to stoichiometric proportion.
