Problem 2.47

Postby Michelle_Nguyen_3F » Wed Oct 19, 2016 2:25 pm

For each of the following ground-state atoms, predict the type of orbital from which an electron will be removed to form the +1 ion. (a) Ge; (b) Mn; (c) Ba, and (d) Au.

Can someone please explain how they are going about this question? I'm getting the correct answers, but would like to know if I'm doing the problems in the correct way.

Also, can someone please explain the electron configuration for Au, specifically?

Thank you!

Electrons are removed from the outermost orbital, so I just identified the outermost orbital for each element :)
