What is an electron a cloud or a shell?
k shell has two electrons because in the structure of an atom every shell has an capacity to have fixed number of electrons that why k shell has capacity to have 2 electrons.
The energy sublevel.
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…ell there are 2
Because electrons were believed to be moving very fast that it almost can't be seen, the scientists found some places where the electrons can be seen and they called it the "e…lectron cloud".
inner shell electrons : the electrons that are not in the the highest occupied energy level .
No, on the most inner shell, only 2 electrons can be held, but then on every other shell it is usally 8
It is arranged into energy levels.
electronic cloud is the presence of free electrons around the nucleus
What are the electron capacities of the sixth seventh and eighth shell layers of an electron cloud I know the first can hold 2 and the second can hold 8 and so on until the sixth layer?
the pattern of an electron cloud is thisenergy level 1: 2atoms energy level 2: 8 atoms energy level 3: 18 atoms energy level 4: 32 atoms energy level 5: 50 atoms i came up wit…h a formula for it: # of atoms= (energy level)(2x energy level) Comment The equation is 2 n2, where n = the sequence of the electron shells.
An electron cloud is an atomic orbital.
Both electrons and electron cloud are same.In early times electron was treated as a particle but now we know that it has a dual nature i.e it can also behave as a wave too.It …is called particle-wave duality. so when we look at electron we see a wave is moving, but due to uncertainty we don't know its velocity or speed so we see it as a "cloud" in some physical and mathematical sense and assume that particle electron is some here inside that cloud. If you are referring to the electron 'cloud' around the nucleus of an atom, the electrons stay in it because they are attracted by the nucleus (they have a negative charge while the nucleus has a positive charge, and opposite charges attract).
Electrons in the electron cloud of an atom are located at specific energy levels. We cannot say with certainty exactly where the electron is physically located at any given mo…ment, and that's because electrons can be at different physical locations at any instant of time. There are quantum mechanical reasons for this, and just one example of the "variability" of location of an electron is quantum mechanical tunnelling.
Electrons are found in the shells and clouds.
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…he orbit is a p orbit, and the orbital is the x, y, or z orientation of that orbit. This is a mathematical expression of where the electron is most likely to be found. The electron cloud is more of a visual representation of the electrons surrounding the nucleus, and is based on the electron orbitals.
