QUESTION

# What is the noble gas configuration for carbon?

The for carbon is 1s^2 2s^2 2p^2.

The noble gas configuration for carbon would use the noble gas in the row above carbon on which would be Helium. Helium has an electron configuration of 1s^2. By replacing the 1s^2 with the noble gas [He] we get a noble gas notation for carbon of [He] 2s^2 2p^2.

However, most chemists do not use noble gas notation for the first 18 of the periodic table.
