Group 5 Transition Metals

Postby Christine Chow 4G » Mon Oct 22, 2018 4:23 pm

2.55 C asks for the electron configuration for Group 5 transition metals, which I thought was just group 5 on the periodic table, but it is apparently the fifth group of the periodic table. Would it be incorrect to call this Group 7?

Hi! Dr. Lavelle posted #55c as an error in the solution's manual for 6th edition, so I'm assuming the same happened for 7th. He says that it should be (n-1)d3 ns2. So you're right, the group 5 transition metals start with Vanadium and so on.
