Question

Identify the electronic configuration of carbon atom from the given options.
  1. 1s2 2s2 2p2
  2. 1s2 2s1 2p3
  3. 1s2 2s2 3p2
  4. 1s2 2s2 3p3


Solution

The correct option is A 1s2 2s2 2p2
When electrons are added to the subshells of the atoms, they are filled in the order from subshells of lower energy to the higher energy.Hence, the electronic configuration of carbon is 1s2 2s2 2p2.
