PROBLEM 55P

Write electron configurations for each transition metal.

(a) Zn

(b) Cu

(c) Zr

(d) Fe

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 55P

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

The electronic configuration of Zn =1s22s22p63s23p63d104s2  =  [Ar] 3d104s2

(b) Cu

Atomic number of Cu = 29

The electronic configuration of Cu =1s22s22p63s23p63d104s1  =  [Ar] 3d104s1

(c) Zr

Atomic number of Zr = 40

The electronic configuration of Zr = 1s22s22p63s23p63d104s24p64d25s2 =  [Kr] 4d25s2

(d) Fe

Atomic number of Fe = 26

The electronic configuration of Fe = 1s22s22p63s23p63d64s2 = [Ar] 3d64s2
