Homework Statement


Draw out the electron configuration of [Fe(H2O)6]3+

The Attempt at a Solution


I did the work, but i am not sure if its correct:

Is the following electron configuration correct for this complex?

[Fe(H2O)6]3+:
[Ar]
4s [ i L ]
3d [ i L l i L l i L l i L l i L ]
The i represents the electrons from the Fe, the L represents the electrons form the H2O.

Thank You.

Seems correct from first glance.

As far as I can deduce, this should be an octahedral complex, so if you want to work out the structure by drawing a Lewis diagram, you should be able to double check.
