    suggest with reasons which of 0.1 mol dm-3 aqueous solutions of [Fe(H20)6]2+ and [Fe(H20)6]3+ would be more acidic?

    anyone??

    [Fe(H20)6]3+

    smaller size, higher nuclear charge --> higher charge density --> higher polarising power --> induce greater partial positive charge on the H atom of the H2O ligand --> ionize more easily

    sorry, should be higher charge
    the nuclear charge is the same
