Question 1E.25

Postby Gabriella Bates 2L » Sun Oct 27, 2019 11:30 am

"Give the notation for the valence-shell configuration (including the outermost d-electrons) of (c) Group 5 transition metals."

Can someone please explain this? The answer says it is (n-1)d5ns2, but i thought it was (n-1)d3ns2. Thanks!

I also got (n-1)d3ns2, and the solutions manual I checked says that this is correct.
