    K2[Co(N3)4] is an example of a first-row transition metal complex.How would substituting the (N3)– ligands for (CN)– ligands affect the shape of the
    complex?

    I know that CN- is a strong field ligand which would increase delta o.
    But how will it change the shape? would it become octahedral?

    Thank you!

    Yes, you would expect the hexacyano octahedral complex
