What is hybridisation and how to find?

Charge on Mn in the complex = -3 –(-6)

  = +3

Electronic configuration Mn3+: [Ar] 3d4 4s0 4p0 4d0

Since, Cl- is a weak ligand, it will not cause pairing of 3d electrons in Mn3+.Therefore, an outer field complex with sp3d2 hybridization will be formed.

 Draw the orientation of Mn3+  (using arrows) .Draw orientation of 6Cl in outer orbits (1s,3p,2d)  as Cl is a weak ligand.So the hyb is sp3d2
