2 Odd Configurations

Postby DTingey_1C » Sun Oct 27, 2019 8:07 pm

Lavelle mentioned 2 odd e- configurations in lecture that don't follow the normal rules of e- configuration. Is it necessary for us to memorize these configurations for the test or will they never show up?

It's best to memorize exceptions to the rule because during the test you can use the rule to figure out every other answer. If we covered it in lecture, there is a good chance we will encounter it on a future test.

My T.A. said that the exceptions have appeared in some test before, so it would be a good idea to know what the exceptions are and their configurations.

Yes, knowing the half full d5 and full d10 subshell exceptions for electron configuration is probably a good idea.

What are the odd configurations that we should know?
