Write the Electronic Configuration of Any One Pair of Isotopes and Isobars. - Science

Write the electronic configuration of any one pair of isotopes and isobars.

Solution

Two isotopes of carbon are ""_6^12C" and """_6^14C

The electronic configuration of ""_6^12C is 2, 4.

The electronic configuration of ""_6^14C is 2, 4.

[Isotopes have the same electronic configuration]

""_20^40Ca" and """_18^40Ar are a pair of isobars

The electronic configuration of ""_20^40Ca  is 2, 8, 8, 2.

The electronic configuration of ""_18^40Ar  is 2, 8, 8.
