Homework Problem 8
Alfred Werner, in the 1890s, prepared several platinum complexes that contained both ammonia and chlorine. He determined the formulas of these species by precipitating the chloride ions with Ag+. The empirical formulas and number of chloride ions that precipitate per formula unit are shown below. Determine the molecular formulas and draw (the best you can) the unique structures of the platinum complexes if each molecule contains just one platinum.
