Electron Configuration of I-

Postby Abigail Urbina 1K » Sat Dec 09, 2017 2:25 pm

For the ground-state electron configuration of I-, is it acceptable/correct on a test to answer it as simply [Xe]? Or is it preferred to write [Kr]4d10,5s2,5p6 (without the commas, of course)? Or are both acceptable?

[Xe] would be accepted unless stated that the written out electron configuration is wanted.
