Electron Configurations

Postby Stephanie H » Tue Jul 11, 2017 10:22 pm

I using this list to write electron configurations

1s,2s,2p,3s,3p3d,4s,4p,4d,5s,5p,4f,5d,6s,6p,5f,6d,7s,7p

Does anyone else use this list? What are your methods for writing electron configurations?

One has to look at the periodic table to obtain correct electron configurations.

The periodic table is grouped into four groups, the s,d,p, and f group. One has to use the periodic table and go off the "long" or "short" version of the electron configuration with the element given.

There are various charts that you can use and the periodic table that is sold as a bundle includes the electron configurations. I found that looking at the periodic table and selecting a random element in the list of elements of approved my professor Lavelle would help in the understanding
