We need to determine which element among Na, Mg, Al, Si, and Ne corresponds to the ground-state electron configuration: 1s22s22p63s2
The ground-state electron configuration can help us identify the atomic number of an element. Recall that every single element in the periodic table has a corresponding atomic number.
Which element has the following ground-state electron configuration?
