How many unpaired electrons are in the c 2 + ​ ion?


Atomic number of C is 6. Hence, there are 6 electrons in carbon. The electronic configuration of carbon is 1s2, 2s2, 2p2 Here, there are 2 unpaired electron. However, C2+ ions have 2 electrons less as compared to C. Hence, electronic configuration of C 2+ ion is 1s2, 2s2. All the electrons are paired in this system. So there are no unpaired electrons in C 2+ ion.
