Write the electron configuration using the spdf notation. (b) Based on its electron configuration, briefly explain why Na has a low electronegativity (0.9). (c) Sketch a planetary model of a sodium atom labeling each electron orbital with it spdf designation. (a) 1 6 2 3 2 2 1 s p s s (b) Losing an electron to fill the n =2 orbital (2s + 2p) is more favorable than gaining an electron to fill 3s. Since electronegativity is a measure of how strongly an atom attracts an electron, Na thus has a low electronegativity....
