What is the position of an element in the periodic table if its electron configuration is #1s^2 2s^2 2p^6 3s^2 3p^5#?

1 Answer

Answer:

VII A group element, 3 period , name of the element is Chlorine

Explanation:

The common electronic configuration of the p block elements is
#nS^2nP^(1-6)#
Here #n=3# and the condition is maintained.
Hence we get that the period of the element of the element is #3# and the group in the long periodic table is 17.
Hope it helps...
