CH101/Ison Ch 4 Worksheet Name: _________, _________ Last, first I. Electron configurations of ions: - Cations of s-block metals lose their highest energy s-electrons. - Cations of d-block metals first lose their highest energy s-electrons, then d- electrons. Fe [Ar] 4s 2 3d 6 , Fe 2+ [Ar]3d 6 , Fe 3+ [Ar]3d 5 . - Cations of p-block metals first lose their highest energy p-electrons. Tl [Xe]6s 2 4f 14 5d 10 6p 1 , Tl 1+ [Xe]6s 2 4f 14 5d 10 If more electrons are lost, they are removed from the highest s-orbital. Tl 3+ [Xe] 4f 14 5d 10 - Anions of p-block non-metals add electrons to their highest energy p-orbitals until they are filled. Practice: Write the electron configurations of the following ions; S 2- ______________ V 3+ _______________ Ni 2+ _____________ Mo 5+ ______________ Pb 2+ ____________ Cl 1- _______________ Mn 4+ ____________ Ag 1+ ______________ What do you notice about the highest energy level of the anions? II. Most common oxidation states: -The oxidation state of an elemental substance (Cl 2 , N 2 , O 2 ) is always zero. -The more electronegative atom will always have the negative charge.
