    Excluding the inner transition elements, many of which are weird: Cr,Cu,Nb,Mo,Ru,Rh,Pd,Ag,Pt and Au.

    Do you know how these could be done?

    Yep.. does it have to be memorized, or can you tell by looking at the chart?

    They can all be rationalized by the unusual stability of a half- or completely-filled d subshell. That results in a predictable transfer of an s electron to the d subshell to make a half- or completely-filled subshell one element early for Cr, Cu, Mo, Ag and Au. The others (Nb,Ru,Rh,Pd,Pt) are just freaks, and you just have to remember them. W is also strange in *not* being strange. Like Cr and Mo, you'd *think* it would be d5,s1 but it's d4,s2. So W is also a freak.
