I missed one lecture because I was sick, and now I am behind. I tried reading the book (for the last two days), but its useless; there aren't many examples, and the ones that are given, are really vague, and leave some big gaps to fill up. Now, I have a test tomorrow, and I could really use some help on this subject.
What is the electron configuration for the ground state of an oxygen atom?
What is this in spdf notation and in box notation?
How do I even begin to solve these problems?
