Just to be sure, on the test, will we get marked down points if we only indicate the P state on its own instead of specifically notating Px, Py, and Pz?

Hey,
I'm pretty sure Dr. Lavelle stated in class that the concept is good to know and understand, but you wouldn't get points marked off if you chose to not label px or py.

so for Nitrogen, for example, can I write 1s^2 2s^2 2P^3 ? Instead of 1s^2 2s^2 2Px^1 2Py^1 2Pz^1 ?

Yeah that's correct. Just not as specific.
