How can i explain the electron configuration for silcon. I Know it's [Ne].3s2.3p2 but how do i explain it.

Si has 14 electrons.
The fill by low energy level to higher is
1s2, 2s2, 2p6, 3s2, 3p2
I don't know what else there is to explain. If this isn't the answer you are looking for, please clarify your question.

Yes It Does thanks

    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
