Electron Configuration - Orbital Diagrams

Postby 105085381 » Mon Oct 29, 2018 12:49 pm

In drawing out an orbital diagram for an element, can someone explain the easiest steps to take? I know you have to take the electron configuration and work from there, but how can you be sure that your orbital diagram correctly translates from the electron configuration?

Drawings are done from lowest to highest energy, bottom to top. See textbook or office hours for help with drawings.
