Homework 2D #5

Postby MaryBanh_2K » Fri Nov 01, 2019 1:25 pm

For 2A5 in the homework, how come when we find the ground state e-configuration for Bi+3 we include 6s^2 but we don’t include it for the ground state e- configuration for TI+3?

This is because in Bi+3, it would lose the three electrons in the 6p block first, while in Tl+3, it would lose its one electron in the 6p block and then the other two electrons from the 6s block since it only has one electron in the 6p block.
