Ground-state means that Vanadium is in its lowest energy form (not in an excited state). Vanadium also has no charge (neutral element) which means that no electrons are removed or added in the atom.
Neutral element: Atomic number = # protons = # of electrons
▪ Atomic number = 23
▪ # of electrons = 23 e-
Write the electronic configuration of vanadium(V).
