Electron configuration of molecules

Postby Xin Huang 3E » Wed Nov 16, 2016 2:10 pm

Should we write detailed version of electron configuration like:(σ2s)2(σ*2s)2(π2px)2(π2py)2(σ2pz)1
Or a shorter version like: (σ2s)2(σ*2s)2(π2p)4(σ2p)1
in quiz 3?

It might depend on your TA, but in the course reader, there is an example where you have: (σ2s)^2(σ*2s)^2(σ2pz)^2(π2p)^4(π*2p)^2. It's on page 109.
