- deriving the term symbols

- Relevant Equations
- J= L+S

Hi everyone!

I need some help in a specific task.

It´s about this problem:

An excited state of atomic calcium has the electron configuration 1s 2 2s 2 2p6 3s 2 3p6 3d1 4f 1 . (a) Derive all the term symbols (with the appropriate specifications of S, L, and J) for the electron configuration. (b) Which term symbol corresponds to the lowest energy of this electron configuration? (c) Consider a 3 F2 level of calcium derived from a different electron configuration than that shown above. Which of the term symbols determined in part (a) can participate in spectroscopic transitions to this 3 F2 level?

I´m not sure if I my solutions are correct. So could you take a look?

First, I start with a), then I'll post b) and c). I hope that you can help me, thanks in advance!
