**Step-1:**

**To do electron configuration of sulphur,**

**we need to understand the atomic number of**

**sulpur(S)**

**.**

You are watching: What is the electron configuration of sulfur

You are watching: What is the electron configuration of sulfur

**The atomic number of**

**sulphur**

**is 16.So**

**sulpur**has 16 electrons and also 16 protons.

Electron configuration |

**Look exactly how I discover the electron configuration for**

**sulphur**.

**This procedure is applicable for all the facets of the regular table.**

**Step-2:**(

**How execute you remember the order of electron configurations?)**

**Now we have to memorize the complying with sequence of the orbitals.**

**ss**

**ps ps**

**dps dps**

**fdps**

**fdps fdps fdps....**

**In a line-**

**ssps psdps dpsfdps fdps**

**fdps fdps fdps fdps.......**

**Step-3:**

**Now we need to initially numer the s-orbital (start via 1s)prefer this:**

**1s2s**

**p3s p 4s**

**dp 5s dp 6s**

**fdp7s fdp 8s...... According to your need.**

**In a line-**

**1s2s**

**p3s p 4s**

**dp 5s dp 6s**

**Remember ● s-orbital begin via 1s ● p-orbital begin through 2p ● d-orbital start with 3d ● f-orbital begin through 4f**

**Aacquire,Now(second) we require number the p-orbital(begin via 2p) like this:**

**ss**

**2ps 3ps**

**d 4ps d 5ps**

**fd6ps**

**fd7ps fd8ps fd9ps....**

**In a line--**

**ss**

**2ps 3ps**

**d4ps d5ps**

**fd6ps**

**fd7ps fd8ps fd9ps....**

**Thirdly,we require number the d-orbital(begin via 3d)like this:**

**ss**

**ps ps**

**3dps 4dps**

**f5dps**

**f6dps f7dps f8dps....**
