Ge < Rb < S < F < Kr 2. Kr < Rb < Ge < S < F correct 3. Not enough information 4. F < Ge < S < Rb < Kr 5. Kr < Ge < Rb < S < F 6. Rb < Ge < S < F < Kr Explanation: Elements electron affinities increase across a given period and up and given group. Noble gases (i.e. Kr) have an electron affinity of essentially zero. Rb is greater than zero, Ge is greater than Rb, S is greater than Ge, and F is greater than P. 002 5.0 points What is the electronic configuration of a Cop- per atom (Cu)? 1. [Ar]4 s 2 3 d 5 4 p 3 2.
