The group of the element indicates the amount of valence electrons. For example, the alkali metals have one valence electron and is in group one whilst the halogens have seven valence electrons and are in group seven.
Because it does have 18 valence electrons; it's the only element with 18 valence electrons.
Germanium is in the fourth period with 4 valence electrons.
The valence electrons are the electrons that can be involved in chemical bonding. With a knowledge of valence electrons the chemist can predict how an element is likely to react.
Looking at the periodic table you can determine how many valence electrons an element has. The number of valence electrons determines many of the properties of elements.
The group number of an element indicates number of valence electrons.
the valence electrons are responsible for an element's reactivity, it also determines where an element is in the periodic table.
This is a chemical element. You can find the how many electron in a single atom by using a periodic table.
there are 6 valence electrons in each element in group 16
The Elements in group 13 of the periodic table (Boron, Aluminum, Gallium, etc.) have three VALENCE electrons.
Atomic number and valence electrons.
By the group number of the A columns
The number of valence electrons is dependent on which group of the periodic table the element is in.Since Argon is in group 8, it has a total of 8valence electrons.
As you go down a group (or family) on the periodic table, the number of valence electrons remains the same. As you go accross a row, the number of valence electrons increases by one for each element.
Halogens have 7 valence electrons. They can be found on the second column from your right on the periodic table
As you move left to right on the periodic table, the number of valence electrons an element has increases. The number of valence electrons an element has corresponds to which group (column) an element is. (This rule does not apply to transition metals...)
Helium. It has 2 electrons in its single shell.
Hydrogen has 1 valence electron. The amount of valence electrons for any element can be identified by it's group number in the periodic table.
The element chlorine has seven electrons in its valence shell.
The number of valence electrons of an element is determined by its periodic table group in which the element is categorized. Except for groups 3 to 12 which are the transition metals.
