Determine the GROUND STATE TERM SYMBOLS for both configurations

Chromium can have two possible configurations: (4s)^2(3d)^4 and (4s)^1(3d)^5. The latter configuration is favored due to the added stability of the half filled d-shell.a) Determine the GROUND STATE TERM SYMBOLS for both configurations. Hint: You don’t have to find all of the terms, just the lowest energy one. Remember Hund’s rules. Show all possible J-values for both configurations.b) Do Hund’s rules help rationalize why the (4s)^1(3d)^5configuration is lower than the (4s)^2(3d)^4 configuration? Why or why not?
