I saw on an example online that for the electron configuration of some metals electrons are donated from the s block? I saw this specifically for silver and wanted to know how often this occurs and how much we should take this into consideration when doing our work.
This is because that specific element is more stable if the s-orbital donates an electron to the d-orbital since it makes it more symmetric. Silver is an example of one of these elements. However, the only two exceptions you need to know are Copper and Chromium.
There is no way to figure this out on th spot — Dr. Lavelle said we just need to have those two exceptions memorized.
