Help pleasee; how would you approach this problem?
Write the ground-state electron configuration for each of the following atoms:
a) silver
b) beryllium

You should watch this video by Bozeman Science: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AFPfg0Como. The first 7 minutes are an intro to what the different subshells and energy levels are, but he talks about writing electron configurations at the 7-minute mark.

For silver, I would suggest writing the expected electron configuration and then switching the electron from the 5s to the 4d (since you're trying to get 4d^10). For beryllium, just go through the 1s, 2s order.
