What is the atomic configuration of oxygen?

[He] 2s2 2p4

Then, what is the electron configuration of 02?

[He] 2s2 2p4

How do you determine the electron configuration of an atom?

Method 1 Assigning Electrons Using a Periodic Table
  1. Find your atom's atomic number.
  2. Determine the charge of the atom.
  3. Memorize the basic list of orbitals.
  4. Understand electron configuration notation.
  5. Memorize the order of the orbitals.
  6. Fill in the orbitals according to the number of electrons in your atom.

What is the ground state configuration of F?

The neutral electronic configuration of F is 1s2 2s2 2p5. When it becomes F+, it means it lose 1 electron (although non common since F is an electronegative atom). Therefore, the electronic configuration of F+ is 1s2 2s2 2p4.
