blocks

Are we going to need to remember the groupsfor s block, p block, and d block???

That would be extremely helpful, but they are pretty clear on the periodic table, which will be given to us on every test. Just remember that s is on the left, p is on the right, and d is in the middle

I think it is good to know how it works and how to find them so yes.

Yes knowing the blocks and their corresponding numbers is needed. However, we will not be using radioactive elements in calculations so we do not need to know every section.

Are the blocks needed for electron configuration?

I think that remembering that s is on the left, p is on the right, d is in the middle, and f is at the bottom would be enough for this course. And remember that f-block is actually inserted in the 6th and 7th period, between s-block and d-block.

you should! It helps a lot with noble gas orientation & electron configuration in general

It wouldn't hurt to know it! It'll probably be very helpful

I would say yes, especially given that you have to be able to write electronic configurations.

Remembering them will help you write out electron configurations using the periodic table.

Yes, knowing the blocks is very beneficial when writing out electron configurations.

How do we use them for electron spinning?

It is easier to have a physical copy of periodic table and highlight the different blocks on there to make life easier. It has helped me personally in memorizing the orbitals and their characteristics.

We are provided a periodic table, but it wouldn't hurt to know them anyways!
