Alright guys. So let's try to do this one. Let's do the neutral form of iron first. So iron, when it's neutral, it is are gone for us to three d six six positive means we lose six electrons. So we're gonna have left is are gone We lose the first two from the four s meaning we have to lose form or so we take them from the three d. So doing that and give us three d to so three D to would be your answer here. So this will be our gone three d to hopefully you're able to do all these electron configurations. Remember, the exception that we talk about mainly is for first row transition metals. We don't tend to see that the further down we go in terms of those two columns within the transition metal pit. Remembering these key exceptions is key to getting the correct answer at the end
