				   why oxygen molecule is paramagnetic in nature

hi sohail,


  The order in which O2 will fill the orbitals is:



sigma2s, sigma2s*, sigma2p, sigma2p*



Two electrons can occupy each s orbital, while 6 electrons can occupy each p orbital. Following the Exclusion Principle, two electrons will fill both the 2s and 2s* orbitals, 6 electrons will fill the 2p orbital, and that leaves 2 electrons to fill the 2p* orbital. These two electrons will only partially fill this orbital, and will have parallel spins. Since the rest of the electrons are all paired, the remaining two electrons in the 2p* orbital give the diatomic molecule a net total spin (it does not matter if they are 1/2 or -1/2 spins, they will both be the same). Since there is a net spin, O2 is paramagnetic.

why glass is called super cooled liquid?
 
 
Antique windowpanes are thicker at the bottom, because glass has flowed to the bottom over time. Glass has no crystalline structure, hence it is NOT a solid . Glass is a supercooled liquid. ...

Glass is an amorphous solid. Like liquids, amorphous solids have a tendency to flow, though very slowly. Therefore, sometimes these are called pseudo solids or super cooled liquids.
