Problem: Is the electron configuration for Ag+ [Kr]4d10?

FREE Expert Solution

Atomic number = # of protons = # of electrons

Ag: atomic number = 47 47 protons & 47 electrons

Neutral Ag: 1s22s22p63s23p64s23d104p65s24d9

d orbitals → prefer to be half-filled or fully filled

move 1 electron from 5s to 4d

Neutral Ag: 1s22s22p63s23p64s23d104p65s14d10

Neutral Ag: 1s22s22p63s23p64s23d104p65s14d10
