QUESTION:

Write electron configurations for each transition metal.

(a) Zn

(b) Cu

(c) Zr

(d) Fe

ANSWER:

Step 1 of 2

Electron configurations describe the arrangement of electrons in an atom. They are determined by the Pauli exclusion principle, Hund's rule  and the Aufbau principle. Here, we have to write the electronic configuration for each transition metal. Electronic configuration is the distribution of electrons of an atom  in atomic or molecular orbital.

(a) Zn

Atomic number of Zn = 30 

\(\text { The electronic configuration of } \mathrm{Zn}=1 \mathrm{~s}^{2} 2 \mathrm{~s}^{2} 2 \mathrm{p}^{6} 3 \mathrm{~s}^{2} 3 \mathrm{p}^{6} 3 \mathrm{~d}^{10} 4 \mathrm{~s}^{2}=[\mathrm{Ar}] 3 \mathrm{~d}^{10} 4 \mathrm{~s}^{2}\)
