What is an example of a complex ion associated with a nonmetal, in regards to transition metals?
AgCl is soluable in _______, not soluable in _______.
Aqueous ammonia (due to the formation of the complex ion [Ag(NH3)2]+
The formation of complexes, for transition metals, causes what?
The d-orbitals to split into two energy sublevels
The two energy sublevels of transition metals allows complexes to do what?
Enables many of the complexes to absorb certain frequencies of light
Which frequencies give the transition meta's complexes their characteristic color?
The frequencies not absorbed give the complexes their characteristic colors
What is subtraction frequencies?
Frequencies not absorbed
When we perceive an object as a particular color, what is it due to?
That color is not absorbed, but rather reflected by to you by the object.
