1s2 2x2 2p6 3s2 3p6 is the electron configuration ofr for which ion?

I believe your 2x2 should be 2s2. You have 18 electrons in filled orbitals. That could be a +1 charged element 19 (K+) or a +2 charged element 20 (Ca++) \, for example. In either case, it is a very stable ion because of the filed orbitals.

    There are several exceptions to the octet rule found along the transition and rare earth metal sections. These exceptions are tied to the observed phenomenon that atoms are more stable if orbital systems are either whole or half

    Dr.Bob, yesterday you told me : "The best way I think is to show examples. 12Mg = 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 Here the 1s orbital is lower than the 2s and they are lower than the 3s etc." 19K = 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 3d0 4s2 Here the 1s is lower

    You write the electron structure like this. 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 3d10 4s1 is the neutral Cu atom. Remove the two outside electrons to make the Cu^+2 ion. That leaves us with 3d9 as the outside and since that is an odd number, one
