    Hey guys, stuck on q.17(b)(ii) on this paper:

    http://www.edexcel.com/migrationdocu...e_20110131.pdf

    Only difference between the 2 I note is their charges, but how does this affect pH? Can't seem to understand this...any ideas?

    Cheers!

    The acidity of some complexes is caused by the high charge density of the metal ion. So compare the charge density of Cr3+ with Cu2+ :yep:

    Cr3+ has the greater charge density of the 2, though how does Charge density affect pH? :eek:
