What characterizes the electron configurations of transition metals such as silver and iron?

Thanks Alot in Advance..

Fe is in the 3d transition series and Ag is in the 4d series. Thus, the distinguishing electron for the 3d series enters the 3d orbital while those for the 4d series enters the 4d orbital.
