Q:

Is C2 Paramagnetic or Diamagnetic?

 A) Paramagnetic B) Diamagnetic C) Ferromagnetic D) Can't be determined

Explanation:

Paramagnetic Molecules ::

If the Electronic configuration of a molecule has any unpaired electrons, then that molecule is said to be Paramagnetic.

Diamagnetic Molecules ::

If the Electronic configuration of a molecule has only paired or spin paired electrons, then that molecule is said to be Diamagnetic.

Here the molecule C2 has all paired electrons in its electronic configuration. So C2 is Diamagnetic.

Whereas, B2 molecule has unpaired electrons. So B2 is Paramegnetic.

Q:

$Mg+O2=MgO$

Balance the above Chemical equation?

 A) 2Mg + O2 ----> 2MgO B) 2Mg + O ----> 2MgO C) 2Mg + O ----> MgO2 D) 2Mg + O2 ----> MgO2

Explanation:

Given Equation is

Balancing the Chemical Equation is nothing but Conservation of Matter. As Matter is Neither created nor Destroyed, it must be conserved.

Here we have 1 Mg and 2 O on the left side and 1 Mg and 1 O on the right side

To balance that, add 1 Mg on the left side so that it becomes 2 Mg and 2 O on the left side

i.e,

Here it has 2 Mg & 2 O on the left side and 2 Mg and 2 O on the right side and the Chemical equation is Balanced.
