Write the ground state electron configuration of Br using the noble-gas shorthand notation.


Expert Answer

Step 1

The arrangement of electrons of an atom or molecule in atomic or molecular orbitals is known as electronic configuration.

Step 2

Aufbau’s Rule

This rule states that the filling of electrons in an orbital takes place in increasing order of energy level. The order for filling of electrons is given as follows:
