  • the correct electronic configuration of Ag (not Ag+)

    is [Kr]4d10 5s1

    this is according to Aubaus principle…….

    and now for Ag+……

    1 electron is remove from the 5s orbital……….

    so finally electronic configuration becomes…….

    c. [Kr]4d10

    all the best……..

  • Ag+ has 46 electrons in 4 shells, having lost the one valence electron from its 5th shell.

    Shell 1 = 2, Shell 2 = 8, Shell 3 = 18, and Shell 4 = 18.

    Shell 5 will normally have 1 electron when as a stable element.

  • c [Kr] 4d 10
