    What elements are paramagnetic in the second row of the periodic table?

    Elements can be paramagnetic if they have unpaired electrons.

    Li: 1s2 2s1, 2s is the highest-energy orbital. It has one orientation and 1electrons, so it has 1 unpaired electron.

    Be: 1s2 2s2
    2s is the highest-energy orbital. It has one ...

    Solution Summary

    It finds the paramagnetic elements in the second row of the periodic table.
