Electron Configuration Pattern?
Posted: Sun Nov 03, 2019 4:29 pm
Hi, I'm doing a review on electron configuration, but I seem to have forgotten the pattern or order behind determining configuration. So if I randomly picked an element on the periodic table, what steps would I need to take to determine its electron configuration and noble gas configuration? Let's do Silicon and Bromine's electron and noble gas configurations as examples. And what were the exceptions Professor Lavelle was talking about? Thank you in advance!
