Worksheet: Atomic Term Symbols

In this worksheet, we will practice using Hund's rules to produce term symbols for atoms, identifying ground states, and predicting favored transitions.

Q1:

The electronic configuration of the neutral silicon atom is 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p2. Determine the term symbol for the ground state.

  • A 1S0
  • B 1D2
  • C 1D0
  • D 3P0
  • E 3P2
