Step 1

The term electronic configuration for a given atom can be defined as a representation of the arrangement of the electrons that have been distributed in the orbital shells and subshells as well.

Most commonly, the electronic configuration is used for the description of the orbitals of an atom when it is present in its ground state.

Step 2

The orbitals are filled in accordance with the Aufbau principal according to which the orbitals are filled in order of their increasing energy.

Step 3

The atomic number of Chlorine is 17. It is a p-block element which belongs to the seventeenth g...
