Homework 3.5

Postby ludrin8348 » Sun Jul 16, 2017 10:51 pm

For this problem, I need to find the electron configuration of several ions with different charges (+/-) and I was wondering if we need to take/add electrons from the shell that has the highest energy, or from the shells that will make our atom more stable.

For example:

a) Cu+
The normal e- configuration would be Cu:[Ar] 4s1, 3d10.
Do I remove the 4s1, or do I take an e- from the 3d10?

i believe you take from 3d10
