    \(Electronic~ configuration~ of ~Calcium ~(Ca)\) Atomic number of calcium = 20 Therefore number of electrons = 20 Thus, electronic configuration of calcium is |dw:1441540508433:dw| Thus, Number of orbit in calcium = 4 So, which is your Answer ? @moudown828

    |dw:1441544690430:dw| here are the limit values of your s,p,d, and f : s=2 p=6 d=10 f=14, the atomic number for calcium is 20. so following the pattern, the answer should be 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 4s2. when you add it the sum would be 2+2+6+2+6+2 = 20 which is the atomic number for calcium.

    |dw:1441545260354:dw| the pattern should be like a zig zag line
