what do you mean try?
try using the octet rule
what happened to your dots?
does Be have complete octet?
one exception right there
how many are there?
i know H and He are 2
transition elements or those within the d-block
this time it exceeds the octet
Be, H, He, Transition Metals....more? :S
okay i guess i got this part down pretty well...so the why would be that there are exceptions because some exceed or do not have enough, and remain stable?
the exceptions are electron deficient species species with expanded octet and free radicals
that makes a cleaner list lol
yup. you're good to go
wait but the why?
I am surprised you're not using the textbook I shared you.
lost the link .-.
i was looking for textbooks actually lol
octet rule makes it deficient in predicting their bond properties
fair enough....cool, yay!
what does free radicals mean?
stable molecules that contain odd number of electrons
transitions fall under that?
not necessarily. but you have to look at them case by case
awe, shucks! thanks ^_^
