Can someone here explain to me how to do electron configurations using the periodic table and the noble gas shortcut?
I can't find an explanation on google that explains it well for me.

Man, fuck chemistry. I'm looking, too, because I want to know what the hell yout're talking abouy.

Blue elements (and Helium) have s orbitals
pink elements have d orbitals
green elements have f orbitals
yellow elements have p orbitals

The noble gases can represent the kernel (inner electrons) of an atom.
So instead of writing out this for Lithium:
Li 1s^2 2s^1
You could write:
Li [He] 2s^1
Especially useful for longer configurations.

But how do I use that to write out like 1s2, 2s2, 2p6 and so on.
Because I'd prefer to not have to memorize how it goes.

There is no easy way to do it, you just have to memorize it.

Though, after you get through this, it never comes up again, so just memorize it.

you can take the Electronic Config for somthing like Ar, and add to it to give you the elements/ions after it. Using Ar as a shortcut to write out the configs for transistion metals is a good example

This good enough?
I only had to do elements 1-86, so anything after that may differ.
S orbitals can only have 2 electrons
P orbitals can only have 6 electrons
D orbitals can only have 10 electrons
F orbitals can only have 14 electrons.
from left to right, elements gain one electron
