Is lithiums electron shell filled up all the way?

No. It has two shells with 2 and 1 electron each. The second shell is unfilled.

Why does the third period in the periodic table contain 8 elements?

Because it corresponds to the filling of the 3s and 3p subshells (of the third shell) which take a total of 8 electrons, two in the 3s and 6 in the 3p subshell. Each additional electron in these sub shells represents a different element eg 1 electron, 3s1, corresponds to sodium, 3 electrons, 3s2, 3p1, correspond to aluminium, 7 electrons, 3s2, 3p5, to chlorine.

What energy does it take to remove an electron from an atom?

This is called the ionization energy and an is different for each electron in the atom. Electrons in the outer shell (furthest from the nucleus) have the lowest ionization energy, electrons in the innermost shell (closest to the nucleus) have the highest ionization energy.

What is the outer shell of an electron called?

The electron shell is also called the principle energy level in chemistry and atomic physics. The shells starting closest to the nucleus names go from shell 1 or shell K, shell 2 or shell L,shell 3 or shell m, etc. Each shell contains a certain amount of electrons the first shell starts with two and the number increases for each shell.

Number of electrons on a electron cloud?

Each atom on the periodic table has a different number of electrons which corresponds to its element number. The electrons are located in different atomic orbitals, or electron clouds, labeled s, p, d, and f. The numbers of electrons within each orbital is determined by quantum mechanical rules, but can easily be looked up in a table of electron configurations.
