Determine the electron configuration of Fe (iron) and construct the orbital diagram for the electrons in the d-orbitals
Recall that for a neutral element, Atomic number = # of protons = # of electrons.
The atomic number of Fe is 26 and since it’s a neutral element, this means Fe has 26 electrons.
Fe has __________ that is (are) unpaired in its d orbitals.
A. one electron
B. two electrons
C. three electrons
D. four electrons
E.none of these
