Supplemental Practice Problem 1) Photoelectron spectroscopy is a technique that is used to measure the ionization energies of different atomic orbitals by irradiating an element with high energy X-ray radiation. Below is the spectrum of calcium, showing its 5 lowest energy orbitals. a) What is the electron configuration of calcium? b) Label the peaks in the spectrum with the name of the orbital that has that ionization energy. c) Sketch an energy level diagram of the orbitals whose ionization energies are measured in
