do you know how to put in the electrons and fill orbitals etc?
Take a look at that periodic table
The first electron that you put into goes into 1s and if we were to stop there that would be the configuration for hydrogen. The s orbital can hold 2 electrons so if we place another electron what electronic configuration would we have and if I were to stop there what element would that be?
1. Ok. so when we fill orbitals we always start from the lowest energy possible. 2. Each orbital can hold a maximum of 2 electrons.
We have generally have 5 different types of orbitals these are arranged in increasing energy. s,p,d,f An s orbital is our smallest it holds 2 electrons. A P orbital holds 6 electrons A d orbital holds 10 electrons and an f orbital holds 14 electrons.
I got 3 is that correct
sorry 4 types s,p,d,f yeah so I'll show you how to get there step by step.
okay can you please
So first thing we do is that we look at copper and how many electrons it has an atomic number of 29. So that means it has 29 electrons and 29 protons. so we start filling our orbitals like this 1s^2 2s^2 2p^6 3s^2 3p^6 4s^1 3d^10
If you see that periodic table I put there. try to locate copper first and then fill the orbitals based on the picture.
Based off that periodic table I put in the comments try to locate copper and tell me what energy level it's in
so yeah what energy level is copper located in on that table?
