μ = Magnetic Moment ;  n = Number of unpaired electron;




This calculator consider the spin only magnetic moment of a substance. Thus if there is an orbital contribution to the magnetic moment then this equation would produce inaccurate result. It has been observed that this equation yields appropriate values magnetic moment of 3d transitional elements.
