2013 Final Question 2C

Postby Christian_Makar_2D » Mon Nov 28, 2016 1:10 pm

this question asks what elements can have the electron configuration [Kr]4d^10. One of the answers was Pd which when I did the configuration, I got [Kr]4d^8 5s^2. Does this mean that the exception that occurs with chromium and copper also applies to elements in that need two more electrons to fill up the entire d orbital ?

The question says that all of these have the [Kr]4d^10 configuration EXCEPT one of the following, which by what you discovered, would be Pd. So, Pd is the answer because it is the only one that does NOT have that configuration.

Actually the only one that did not have a configuration of [Kr]4d^10 was In+ so Pd did satisfy the condition and my point stands.
