Homework Help: Wave function for ionized iron?

  1. Nov 24, 2009 #1
    Suppose that you want to fint the wave function for ionized iron which have the electron configuration 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 3d6

    And suppose that the LS-coupling scheme gives accuret enouhgt description och the energy levels.

    Paulis exclusion principle and Hunds rule gives then that the lowest term is 5D (notation of LS-coupling).

    Then we know then that S=2, how do we construct the total wave function?

    What do we know about the wave function for the spin, I mean tripplet, dubblet, singlet, symmetric or anti-symmetric?

    With regards
