Problem: Give the ground state electron configuration for Pb. a. [Xe]6s25d106p2b. [Xe]6s24f145d106p2c. [Xe]6s26p2d. [Xe]6s25f146d106p2e. [Xe]6s24f145d106s26p2

FREE Expert Solution

You can determine the ground-state electron configuration of Lead (Pb) by referring to the periodic table and locating the position of Pb in the periodic table.

Ground-state means that the element is in its lowest energy form (not in excited state). Pb has no charge which means that no electrons are removed or added in the atom.
