We’re being asked to determine the electron configuration for S6+.
For this problem, we need to do the following:
Step 1: Determine the electron configuration of the neutral element.
Step 2: Determine the electron configuration of the ion.
Write the electronic configurations of the six cations that form from sulfur by the loss of one to six electrons. For those cations that have unpaired electrons, write orbital diagrams.
