Problem

How many unpaired electrons are present in a ground-state atom from Group 6A(16)?

Solution

Group 6 A elements → 6 Valence electrons

Following Hund's rule where we have to half-fill the orbitals first before electrons start to pair

Group 6 A has 4 orbitals (1 in s and 3 in p)

Example as O:
