Is C2O4 ^2- a strong ligand and h20is weak . But in the series in the increasing order if field strength c2o4 comes before h20? How is that so?

Dear Student,

C2O42- is a weak field ligand. It causes small splitting of energy levels.It is even weaker than H2O and therefore, comes before H2O is the spectrochemical series.
