Answer:

#1s^1#

Explanation:

Hydrogen is located in period 1, group 1 of the Periodic Table of Elements and has an atomic number equal to #1#.

This implies that the electron configuration of a neutral hydrogen atom must account of a single electron.

This electron will be located on the first energy level, in the #s# subshell, in the #1s# orbital, the sole orbital that exists on the first energy level.

Therefore, the electron configuration for hydrogen will be

#"H: " 1s^1#
