2. What is the electron configuration of Mn2t? [Ar]3d b. [Ar]3d34s2 a. . [Ar]3d*4s! d. [Ar]3d 4s2 e. [Ar]3d 4s!


Expert Answer

Step 1

The atomic number of Manganese (Mn) is 25

The electronic configuration of Manganese is 1s22s22p63s23p64s23d5 or [Ar]3d54s2.

Step 2

Mn2+  is formed by the loss of two electrons. Therefore, the number of electrons in Mn2+ ion is 23.

Thus, the electronic configuration of Mn2+ is 1s22s22p63s23p63d5.  This configuration can also be written as or [Ar]3d5.

Step 3

Hence, option (a) is the correct option.

The other option...
