Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, would i just do this: I know that the 1st layer can have 2 electrons , while the 2nd layer can hold 8 and the third layer can withstand 18. Would I draw a circle (nucleus) and have rings around it with the number of electrons orbiting the nucleus?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The shell nearest to the nucleus can hold a maximum of 2 electrons. The Second nearest shell can hold 8 maximum and the third shell can withstand 18 but acts temporarily full when it has 8
