What are electron shells?

What is an electron shell?

it is the ring around the nucleus of an atom which contains electrons   in the first shell there are 2   in the second there are 8   third ''   in the outer sh

What is electronic shells?

  Electronic shells are the specific shells in which electrons orbit around the nucleus of an atom, each electron shell has a specific energy level.

How does the periodic table help us determine how many electrons fit into each shell of the electron cloud?

This is hard to explain, sorry if it is vague for you, but I will try to make it clear.    The way you can find the number of energy shells is by looking at the ROWS of

What is the difference between an electron shell orbital or cloud?

The shell is the principle energy level, and is defined as 1, 2, 3,  etc. (or K, L, M, etc). An orbital is the spacial orientation of  the orbit, such as px, py, pz, where t
