What is an energy level diagram?
Energy level diagrams are a means of analyzing the energies electrons can accept and release as they transition from one accepted orbital to another.
How do chemists use energy level diagrams and electron configuration notation?
Chemists use the energy level diagram as well as electron configuration notation to represent which energy level, subshell, and orbital are occupied by electrons in any particular atom. Chemists use this information in these ways:
What are energy levels of an atom?
Energy levels are nothing but the fixed distances of electrons from the nucleus of an atom. The energy levels are also called electron shells. An electron can move in one energy level or to another energy level, but it can not stay in between two energy levels. The figure shows the energy levels of an atom.
What is the Order of energy at energy level 2?
At energy level 2, there are both s and p orbitals. The 2s has lower energy when compared to 2p. The three dashes in 2p subshells represent the same energy. 4s has lower energy when compared to 3d. Therefore, the order of energy level is as follows:
