Homework 1E.13

Postby bonnie_schmitz_1F » Mon Oct 22, 2018 10:05 pm

As I was going through this problem, I realized once I got to the fourth energy level, I was unsure when to add 4f. For example, Sb goes from 4d10 to 5s2, but then W goes 4f14, 5d4, 6s2. Could someone explain when you should include the f orbital?

The f orbital is included after the 6s2 orbital is filled. When looking at the periodic table, you can see that the f block starts in period 6.
