Problem 2PE

Electron Configurations for a Group What is the characteristic valence electron configuration of the group 7 A elements, the halogens? Which family of elements is characterized by an ns2np2 electron configuration in the outermost occupied shell?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 2PE Solution: Here, we are going to identify the family of elements having outermost electronic configura tio ns np . Step1: The distribution of electrons in different orbitals is known as electronic configuration of the atom. The filling of orbitals are governed by the following rules: a) Aufbau principle: The Aufbau principle states that in the ground state(lowest energy state) of an atom, an electron enters the orbital of lowest energy first and subsequent electrons are fed in the order of increasing energies. The orbital should be filled in the following sequence: 1s, 2s, 2p, 3s, 3p, 4s, 3d, 4p, 5s, 4d, 5p, ………. b) Pauli’s exclusion principle: According to this principle an orbital can accommodate maximum of two electrons and these must have opposite spins. c) Hund’s rule of maximum multiplicity: According to this rule, electron pairing will not take place in orbitals of same energy(subshell) until each orbital is singly filled. For example, there are three p- orbitals(p , pxndy ) ofzhe p - subshell in a principal energy level. According to Hund’s rule, each of the three p-orbitals must get one electron of parallel spin before any one of them receives the second electron of opposite spin. The three rules are applied simultaneously to get the electronic...
