What is the ground-state electronic configuration of Si?


In the periodic table, silicon (Si) is a close relative to carbon (C). Although the element can be found all over the world, it is not found in our environment individually. There are 14 electrons in a silicon atom. The electronic configuration of silicon is

Si(Z=14) = 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p2

Based on rules for filling of electrons in various orbitals. The ground state electron configuration for Silicon is

1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p2
