The electronic configuration of chromium is__________


The electronic configuration of chromium is 1s22s22p63s23p63d54s1.


Chromium is a chemical element with the atomic number of 24 and represented by the symbol Cr in the Periodic Table. It’s a hard, lustrous silver-grey metal with a lustrous texture. It’s an element with a high melting point.

Properties of Chromium

  • Chromium belongs to 6th group, 4th period and d-block element
  • Melting and boiling point of chromium is 1907 °C and 2672 °C respectively.
  • The expected electron configuration for Chromium will be 1s22s22p63s23p44s23d9
  • Half-filled and fully filled subshell have got extra stability. Therefore, one of the 4s2 electrons jumps to the 3d5 so that it is half-filled. This shows the configuration of the chromium atom 1s22s22p63s23p3d4s1
