HON CHEMISTRY: Wow, you did a great job today! Did quantum numbers begin making more sense when you started using them? Good work with orbital notation and electron configuration. I think you’re going to be seeing arrows and numbers in your sleep!
And then, just when you were getting the hang of drawing arrows, I go and change it! But don’t you think writing electron configuration notation is a whole lot shorter than doing orbital notation? Don’t get me wrong, knowing how to do orbital is great for seeing how the electrons are paired, but this way is waaaay shorter!
Be sure and practice with the homework tonight, and don’t forget to use the Aufbau “chart”! Did you figure out the riddle!
