How do you draw the electron configuration diagram for hydrogen?
Hydrogen in its neutral state would have the electron configuration of
If you look at your periodic table, the elements are arranged in a way that makes it easier to identify the energy levels and orbitals that their electrons will occupy.
Hydrogen has 1 electron and it occupies the lowest energy level of 1. The orbital s can occupy 2 electrons but since Hydrogen is not participating in any bonding, the s only has 1 electron in its orbital.
