Given following electron configurations, 1s22s22p63s23p64s23d104p65s24d9 and 1s22s22p63s23p64s23d104p65s14d10. Part 1: Name the element. Part 2: Both electron configurations are correct, and the second one is what is found most often in nature. Suggest a reason for why silver most often exists as an exception to the normal electron configuration rules.

WendyMorales2007:

count the total number of electrons by looking at the electron configurations.

WendyMorales2007:

how many is there?

XxAngelGirlxX:

2? or you mean in total?

WendyMorales2007:

like how many is there for each?

WendyMorales2007:
