Midterm 6A

Postby Qilan Li 4I » Sat Dec 07, 2019 8:09 pm

The question was: Magnesium ions are a known cofactor in over 300 enzymatic reactions. What are the possible angular momentum quantum numbers of the highest energy electrons in these magnesium ions? Indicate the corresponding subshell of each angular momentum quantum number.

I understand that the highest energy level is 2p but the answer also states that it is for all five electrons. The angular momentum and subshell are also the same for all five electrons. My question is that where does it indicate the five electrons?

I believe this is a mistake and it should be all six electrons
