I am aware that this is not biology; however science and physics are ghost towns.
Oxygen has 8 electrons Magnesium has 12 electron Chlorine has 17 electrons Know how to draw them?
Actually, no I do not. I know what it looks like, i mean the cloud and such, but I need help understanding what I should actually draw... @kalahkid
An atom has a certain number of shells based on the amount of elctrons it has.
I'm not the best explainer so please bear with me
ok I am gracious for any help, so I am listening..
Do you know the sub- atomic particles?
wait, 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?
oxygen..? @kalahkid would still have 2, 8 and 18, becaue]se
all of the element s s have the asme amount dont they ?
No ....Oxygen has 8 electrons so you have to draw 8 electrons on an atom
No the numbers 2, 8, and 18 refer to the number of electrons one shell of an atom can hold
The 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
Remember, though, to place the number of protons and the number of neutrons in the nucleus when drawing the atom
hooookkkk soory o i meant ok my delete butto ni isnt working...
Look at this atom to see what I mean... You know about Atomic number and Mass number right?
Go to the link I sent
ok i did, so I can just udes sue8 use** that?
If you want and you can look up the Chlorine atom diagram too...Use those words in the search box Chlorine atom diagram
Do you understand what I explained to you?
