Ground state configuration is the configuration when electron is in its original orbital. The electron configuration associated with the lowest energy level of the atom is referred to as ground state. Each electron in the atom or ion will be in the lowest energy level possible. Configurations associated with electrons in energy levels other than the lowest are referred to as excited states.
