2 Solution: The electron configuration of C is shown in the figure. 2p 2s ↑↓ 1s ↑↓ The ionization process always removes the highest energy electrons. The first and second ionization process removes 2p electrons. The second and third ionization process removes 2s electrons. After four electrons are removed C 4 is isoelectronic with He. The fifth and sixth electrons must be taken from the 1s orbital which has a much larger negative energy compared to the 2s and 2p. The length of the arrows in the plot below are proportional to the ionization energy. The diagram below shows that the ionization energy increases

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
