3.19 Give the ground-state electron configuration and number of unpaired electrons expected for each of the following ions: (a) Sb3+; (b) Sn4+; (d) Br-; (e) Ni2+.

For part e my answer is [Ar]3d8 with 2 unpaired electrons. Did others get different answers?

As an example of 3d this is another way of writing (n)(l) since n = 3 and l = 2 = d for all angular momentum quantum numbers we have l=0; s l=1; p l=2; d l=3; f l=4; g for the first question (a) 6p; (b) 3d; (c) 2p; (d) 5f (a) n =6 and l = 1 (b) n = 3 and l = 2 (c) n = 2 and l = 1 (d) n = 5 and l = ...

A college student recently had a busy day. Each of the student’s activities on that day (reading, getting a dental x-ray, making popcorn in a microwave oven, and acquiring a suntan) involved radiation from a different part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Complete the following table and match each ...

If we get it wrong do you think we will still get partial credit for trying?

I think we will as long as our answer is relatively close to the actual answer.

I believe the combined molar mass of CuSO4 and 5H2O is 249.68 g/mol. Which when multiplied by 0.05 mol gives 12.484 g CuSO4 5H2O.
