Expert Answer

Step 1

The electron configuration of an atom is the representation of the arrangement of electrons distributed among the orbital shells and subshells.

Step 2

The atomic number of Arsenic (As) is 33. Therefore, total number of electrons in As = 33. The electronic configuration of Arsenic can be written as:

As (33) : 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 3d10 4s2 4p3    

As (33) : [Ar] 3d10 4s2 4p3    

Where, [Ar] = electronic configuration of noble gas Argon (18), i.e, 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s...
