Chemistry Class 12
Solutions to CBSE Sample Paper - Chemistry Class 12

Given below are two statements labelled as Assertion (A) and Reason (R)

Assertion : Magnetic moment values of actinides are lesser than the theoretically predicted values.

Reason : Actinide elements are strongly paramagnetic.

Select the most appropriate answer from the options given below:

  1. Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A
  2. Both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of A.
  3. A is true but R is false.
  4. A is false but R is true.



b. Both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of A.

The magnetic moment is less as the 5f electrons of actinides are less effectively shielded which results in quenching of orbital contributions , they are strongly paramagnetic due to presence of unpaired electrons
