    I know that [Ni(CN)4]2- is diamagnetic and square planar in shape. [NiCl4]2- is paramagnetic and tetrahedral in shape.

    Since these are two completely different complexes (I am assuming), why or what about their magnetic structures/properties is worth highlighting to show the differences between the two?
