Homework Help: Chemistry Electron Configuration Questions

Posted by cbarnett on Wednesday, October 25, 2006 at 8:18pm.

I do not understand anything about electron configuration. How do you figure out if the element is in P,D,S,orF? What do the subscripts represent? What is a subshell? I am so confused!!


You figure it out by using the Aufgau principle, placing electrons in the proper order in orbitals

I suggest a tutoring by another student on this, it is really simple, you are having undoubtably a mental block. It is rather difficult to teach on a text format.

It is really simple..


Here is an interactive site that may be of help. Bob Pursley found this and I saw it yesterday.
