What is the s,p,d,f configuration of barium?
Barium can be found in the 6th energy level (row) of the periodic table. It is also in the 2nd group (column) of the periodic table. The first two groups (columns) of the periodic table represent the 's' orbital group. This means that the s,p,d,f electron configuration for Barium must end with
The full electron (s,p,d,f) configuration would be:
However, to simplify this, noble gas or core notation can be used.
We can therefore write the configuration of barium as:
