FullElectronConfig


Unit:SDL_cdata
Class:none
Declaration:function FullElectronConfig (AtNr: integer): string;

The function FullElectronConfig returns the electron configuration of a particular atom. The parameter AtNr may take any value between 1 and 103 (MaxChemElem). Any other value of AtNr results in a returned empty string.

The function returns a string which contains the electron configuration using the usual shell-orbital notation. For example, the electron configuration of oxygen is defined by the string '1s2 2s2 2p4', which means that oxygen has 2 s-electrons both in the first and the second shell, and 4 p-electrons in the second shell.
