    Can any one tell how to write electronic configuration of any element of periodic table.
    Thank You

    i don't think that the rest are being mean, etc. It could be different time zones and like how some could be sleeping and all right now. At any rate, here's the answer (or partial answer):

    Electronic Configuration in the sense of secondary/pre-uni syllabus can be written in the general form whereby the first 20 elements can follow this general format:
    First 2 electrons
    Next 8 electrons
    Next 8 electrons

    Eg: Na - 2.8.1 <-- first 2 electrons in the first shell, next 8 electrons in the next shell, next electron in the following shell.

    If you are more advanced: there are 4 (or more) sub shells: s, p, d, f
    s orbitals can contain 2 electrons
    p orbitals are sub divided into px, py, pz (relative to their axis) in which each sub orbital can contain 2 electrons which would then allow p subshell to accommodate up to 6 electrons.
    d orbitals are subdivided into 4 sub-orbitals (of which I do not know their sub-names, only their approximate shapes) thus holding a total of 8 electrons
    f orbitals are subdivided into 5 sub-orbitals and thus hold a total of 10 electrons.

    Hence, under this format, Na would thus be or compressing it using an element of similar electronic configuration would result in:
