Determine the atom in the given electronic configuration [Ar]4s23d104p3 using the concept of electron configuration.

When finding the identity of the element, you’ll have to identify the atomic number of that element. Recall that every single element in the periodic table has a corresponding atomic number.

The atomic number of an element is always equal to the number of protons of that element. And when the element is neutral (charge = 0), the number of protons is equal to the number of electrons.

Neutral element:          Atomic number = # protons = # of electrons
