You must have some idea. For example, you can put 14 electrons in f orbitals (# f orbitals = 7 and that x 2 electrons each = 14) and 10 in d orbitals (number d orbitals = 5 and that x 2 = 10 electrons).

I know I was and that is correct. An expanded octet cannot occur with atoms less than atomic number 10 (neon) because there are no d orbitals. So you are correct; I believe Br is the only one with an atomic number larger than 10. I brought up P and S but those elements ARE ...

Generally, your instructor is correct. Hund's rule says that electrons will enter the unoccupied orbitals unpaired and pairing will not begin until all of the orbitals are half filled. That is the 2p orbitals can be 2px1, 2y1 and 2pz1 before they begin pairing up. The next ...

The pi-2p orbitals are lower in energy than the sigma-2p in NO+ because of nitrogen, so they fill before the sigma-2p. The same configuration applies to CN- because both carbon and nitrogen are small atoms. The 2s and 2p orbitals on carbon are higher in energy than on oxygen. ...
