The interplay between the fictitious spin S' = 1/2 and the effective spin S̃=3/2 for Co2+(3d7) ions is considered. The available experimental data on the Ze gi' factors for the two Co2+ complexes in PbMoO4 obtained using the fictitious "spin" S'=1/2 description serve for determination of the Zeeman gi factors corresponding to the effective spin S̃ =3/2. The second-rank zero-field splitting parameters D and E (S̃ = 3/2) are also indirectly determined from the experimental EMR data by employing the formulas arising from projection of the gi(S̃=3/2) factors onto the gi'(S' = 1/2) factors. The so-determined second-rank zero-field splitting parameters and gi(S̃ = 3/2) factors will enable comparison with the respective quantities obtained in a subsequent paper using a combined modeling approach.
