Valence Electron Configuration

Postby 304621080 » Thu Nov 05, 2015 6:38 pm

For the valence electron configuration, is it okay to write (π2P)^3 or do we have to specify by writing (π2Px)^2(π2Py)^1?

My TA told my discussion section that it didn't matter which way you wrote it. Our course reader combines it into (n2P)^3 however.

Both ways are fine
