Concept #1: The Electron Configuration

Concept #2: Condensed Electron Configurations

Concept #3: Charged Electron Configurations

Concept #4: Electron Configurations of Transition Metals

Example #1: Write the full ground-state electron configuration and electron orbital diagram for the following element: 

Ti (Z = 22)

Practice: Write the condensed configuration for the following element: 

Co+ (Z = 27)

Concept #5: Electron Configuration Exceptions

Example #2: With an atomic number (Z) of 42, illustrate the exception to the electron configuration of molybdenum.

Mo (Z = 42)

Example #3: Write the condensed electron configuration of the following ion: 

Ag+ (Z = 47)

Practice: Write the condensed electron configuration of the following ion:

Cu+ (Z = 29)

Practice: The palladium atom possesses a unique electron configuration, in which its d-orbital would prefer to be completely filled. Based on this information, provide the electron configuration of both Pd0 and Pd2+.

Concept #6: Valence Electrons of Transition Metals

Example #4: How many valence electrons are present in the following ion? 

Ni+ (Z = 28)

Practice: Provide the condensed electron configuration and the number of valence electrons for the following ion:

Fe3+ (Z = 26)
