Manytransition metals can b y colored plexions that weparticularly helpful in een isolation and identification in veTheir vite dobitas the properties is the electron configurationof the The foundation to understanding the formation ofcomplex is Activity 1.

What is the rational for this? SU When transitionmetals form ions, they will lose their ns electrons before their(n-1)d electrons. For example, Til has the electronicconfiguration [Ar]3d", NOT [Ar]45 Question 2: Write out thecondensed electronic configurations of c) Mo b) V- a) ZrBecause the ns and (n-1)d valence orbitals of the transitionelements are very close in energy, many or most of the
