When writing electron configurations for atoms in orbital notation, is there a particular way we should write it? I mean, should we write it having shells increase from top-bottom? or from bottom-top? or perhaps linearly? Thanks in advance!
Sometimes its difficult to know what order to write the orbitals. The best one to remember which orbitals have higher or lower energy is with this chart. Follow the arrows from bottom to top and when your done return to the bottom of the next arrow.
