Write the Distribution of Electrons in Carbon and Sodium Atom?

Carbon:

The total number of electrons in a carbon atom is 6.

The distribution of electrons in the carbon atom is as follows:

In the first orbit or K-shell = 2 electrons

In the second orbit or L-shell = 4 electrons

Or, we can write the distribution of electrons in a carbon atom as 2, 4.

Sodium:

The total number of electrons in a sodium atom is 11.

The distribution of electrons in the sodium atom is as follows:

In the first orbit or K-shell = 2 electrons
In the second orbit or L-shell = 8 electrons
In the third orbit or M-shell = 1 electron

Or, we can write distribution of electrons in a sodium atom as 2, 8, 1.
