For the midterm will we need to know how to do electron configurations for the f shell?  [ENDORSED]

For the midterm will we need to know how to do electron configurations for the f shell?

Also, do we have to memorize what general ranges the different types of electromagnetic radiation are in?

To answer your first question, no we don't need to know electron configurations for elements that contain f orbitals. I believe we only need to know electron configurations for elements within the first 4 periods.

As I discussed several times in class, the f-block elements are not covered in general chemistry.

In class we discussed the visible and UV regions several times so they should be known.
