Electronic configuration for zirconium is given below:

1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 4s2 3d10 4p6 5s2 4d2

b.Use the diagram to explain why the Zr4+ ion exists. (2 marks)

When the outer orbitals are filled with applicable number of electrons the element tends to becomes chemically stable under normal conditions. Zirconium atomic structure contains 40 electrons. The nearest noble gas element to zirconium is Krypton, which contains 36 electrons.... Electronic configuration for zirconium is given below:
