For each of the following ground-state atoms, predict the type of orbital (1s, 2p, 3d, 4f, etc.) from which an electron will be removed to form the 11 ion: (a) Ge; (b) Mn; (c) Ba

An electron will be removed from the orbital that has the highest amount of energy since it is easier to take out.

a.) Ge: 4p since it has two electrons in the p-orbital.
b.) Mn: 4s since 4s has a higher energy state than 3d when it is filled.
c.) Ba: 6s since it has two electrons in the s-orbital.
