Question 1E15 7th Edition

Postby Max Hayama 4K » Mon Oct 22, 2018 10:49 pm

Which elements are predicted to have the following ground state electron configurations of their atoms?
(d) [Rn] 7s^2 6d^2

Answer in the solutions manual is Thorium, which is in the 5f subshell. Why is it not rutherfordium? Which is in the 6d subshell.

Hi Max,

Lucky for you, part d of this question is not part of the chem 14a syllabus! You do not need to know how to do this question:) Please see course website for more details on which questions and parts are applicable. Thank you!
