Noble Gases

How would we write the shorthand electron configuration for noble gases?

You use the previous noble gas as the short hand and follow the standard rules for electron configuration. Ex) Electron Configuration for Argon = [Ne] 3s^2 3p^6

Put the atomic symbol of the previous noble gas and then fill out the rest of the remaining electron shells e.g. Neon = [He] 2s^2 2p^6

Much Joy,

All you would do is use the last noble gas as your place-holder. So for Argon, the shorthand would be [Ne]3s2 3p6


Hope this helps!
