What element is 2s^2sp^3? (^# is the superscript) And what is the charge of the ion?

  • chemistry -

    There is no such element as 2s2 2sp3 unless you are talking about hybridized orbitals and i suspect you are not. And if you don't know if its and ion or an element, there is no way to identify it.

  • chemistry -

    the element is 2s2 s p3, not 2s2 2s p3

  • chemistry -

    It must be a 1s or a 2s or a 3s etc and it must be a 2p or a 3p or a 4p etc. It can't just be s p3

    ohh I see. Thanks. I guess it was a typo or something.
