Problem

Electron Configuration

The procedure by which electrons are assigned to (or built up into) orbitals is known as the                principle.

Give an example of a s block element. ______________

Give an example of a p block element. ______________ 

Give an example of a d block element. ______________

Give an example of a f block element. ______________

Solution

We’re asked to name the procedure used to assign electron to orbitals, and give an example for an s, p, d, and an f block element.


Depending on its location in the Periodic Table, an element has the following orbitals in increasing energy order: s, p, d, and f, where:

• s–subshell can hold a maximum of 2 electrons

• p–subshell can hold a maximum of 6 electrons

• d–subshell can hold a maximum of 10 electrons

• f–subshell can hold a maximum of 14 electrons


The assignation of electrons to orbitals is related to the electronic configuration of an element.
