Orbital Diagrams and Electron Dot Structures
Given the electron configuration, draw the orbital diagram and the electron dot structures for each
of the following elements. If the shortcut is given, only do the orbital diagram for the sublevels
shown. Draw one line for s, three lines for p, five lines for d and seven lines for f.

Ions are atoms that have gained or lost electrons. Metals lose e- to become positive and no electrons
are shown on the dot diagram. Nonmetals gain e- to become negative.
