  • question_answer
    Which electronic configuration is not observing the (\[n+l\]) rule

    A)                 \[1{{s}^{2}},2{{s}^{2}}2{{p}^{6}},3{{s}^{2}}3{{p}^{6}}3{{d}^{1}},4{{s}^{2}}\]

    B)                 \[1{{s}^{2}},2{{s}^{2}}s{{p}^{6}},3{{s}^{2}}3{{p}^{6}}3{{d}^{7}},4{{s}^{2}}\]

    C)                 \[1{{s}^{2}},2{{s}^{2}}2{{p}^{6}},3{{s}^{2}}3{{p}^{6}}3{{d}^{5}},4{{s}^{1}}\]

    D)                 \[1{{s}^{2}},2{{s}^{2}}2{{p}^{6}},3{{s}^{2}}3{{p}^{6}}3{{d}^{8}},4{{s}^{2}}\]

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

                    3d subshell filled with 5 electrons (half-filled) is more stable than that filled with 4 electrons. \[1,\,4s\] electrons jumps into \[3d\] subshell for more sability.
