Electron Configuration for Tungsten

Postby Kimberly 1H » Sun Nov 04, 2018 3:45 pm

Why is the correct electron configuration for tungsten: [Xe]4f145d46s2 instead of [Xe]4f145d56s1? Why shouldn't the d orbital be filled halfway in this instance?

I’m pretty sure that exception is only for copper and chromium.
