Problem: Which of the following atoms and ions is (are) isoelectronic with S 2+: Si4+, Cl3+, Ar, As3+, Si, Al3+?

FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to determine which of the following atoms and ions is (are) isoelectronic with S2+


Isoelectronic atoms and ions mean that they have the same number of electrons


To solve this problem, we will calculate the number of electrons of each atom and ion

# of electrons = # of protons – charge

# of protons = atomic number
