    Hello,

    I have transition metal final exam on next week. So, I want to ask questions about small details
    When I drawing the weak-field d orbital splitting, should I leave longer space than the space between eg and t2g in the strong-field. Considering that electrons with low-spin(diamagnetic) have been effected by pairing energy. So that I could have short distance between d orbitals (eg,t2g). On the other hand, with high-spin(paramagnetic)electrons distributed individually in d orbitals which means that I would have long distance between d orbitals.
    Also, I can't stop thinking about how could I say
    Splitting energy > pairing energy
    Giving Long distance between d orbitals

    Splitting energy < pairing energy
    Giving Short distance between d orbitals

    If so, how can electrons with high-spin made to eg orbital unless if they are closer to each other than the low-spin when the Pairing energy influence electron's distribution, I get the long distance to explain the idea of splitting energy value.
    Now, I'm completely confused about it. Will I have the more stable complex with weak-field or the strong-field?

    I already know that complex stability depends on the splitting energy and it goes along with it while it increasing.
    I want to draw triatomic molecules molecular orbital diagram such N-thiosynate, S-thiosynate, Phosphine and Ethylenediamine.
    What's the best book which can instruct me to the right method to do it all alone?
    I have Molecular orbital theory book by
    C.J. Ballhausen
    H.B. Gray


    But, I think it’s a little bet complicated to understand without a teacher!
    Please help me.
    Thank you.

    Have you read advanced inorganic chemistry by cotton and wilkinson? they contain pretty much of undergrad inorganic(for me so far)

    I sincerely doubt you'll "read it", given that my edition, at least, is nigh-on one-and-a-half thousand pages of pretty solid text.

    Your concern has been noticed. Thanks

    I won't read the whole book. I'll find the particular chapter which is related to my questions.
    I'm afraid to let you dawn.
    Sorry!
