Theelectron configurationof atoms is a pretty importantsequenceof numbers:

1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 4s2 3d10 4p6 5s2 4d10 (Hydrogen to Palladium)

Essentially the electron sequence:

2, 2, 6, 2, 6, 2, 10, 6, 1, 10

If you isolate the 1/2 electron spin:

1s1 2s1 2p3 3s1 3p3 4s1 3d5 4p3 5s1 4d5

or the sequence:

1 1 3 1 3 1 5 3 1 5

The prime numbersequenceis an equally important sequence of numbers:

3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53...

If you isolate the number gaps between the primes

i.e.

2 & 3 = 0

3 & 5 = 1 (number 4)

5 & 7 = 1 (number 5)

7 & 11 = 3 (numbers 8,9,10) etc

Number gaps in the prime sequence:

1 1 3 1 3 13 51 5

Electrons configuration 1/2 spin:

1 1 3 1 3 15 31 5

There is a correlation between these sequences other than the 3d5 & 4p3:

1 1 3 1 3 13 51 5 (Primes Gaps)

1s1 2s1 2p3 3s1 3p3 4s1 3d5 4p3 5s1 4d5

and that is where it gets even more interesting...

1 1 3 1 3 13 51 5 (Primes Gaps)

1s1 2s1 2p3 3s1 3p3 4s1 4p3 3d5 5s1 4d5 (Electron Configuration from Hydrogen to Cadmium)

Okay so the 4p and 3d are in the wrong order... why?

What is the difference between p and d?

P orbital or electrons in an 0 orbit

had to delete images... due to forum restrictions

d orbital or electrons in an 8 orbit... (#orbit = probability shells the primes are the key infrascturture)

had to delete images... due to forum restrictions

There is a significant difference...

p orbitals contain 2 electrons on each axis x, y and z

d orbitals contain ONLY 1 electron on each axis AND occupy the same space as the px, py, pz, s = 4 electrons

had to delete images... due to forum restrictions

and in between the x, y and z 6 electrons

had to delete images... due to forum restrictions

So essentially the electrons in the d occupy 10 axis NOT 5... and are in the "same space" as the p and s BUT they go through the middle of the nucleus as there is only 1 electron per axis...

So the d orbitals occupy:

4s1, 4p3, 3d5, 5s1 BUT across the axis so they also occupy the - 4s1, - 4p3, -3d5, -5s1 with the SAME electron... = 10 electrons

I haven't looked at the f orbitals I thought I would let this sink in first - so please don't bombard me with f lol

Okay so what do you think?
