How is it possible that the outer electron of a transition element go to the inner shell?
Under normal conditions, all of the inner shells are already
full to their maximum occupancy, and so no additional electrons can
go into the inner shell. Only with excitation with light can you
create a vacancy in the inner shell such that outer shell electrons
can fill that vacancy. This requires excitation with either
ultraviolet light or x-rays.
An element with a valance electron shell will want to either get rid of or gain an a electron, depending on the number of electrons in that shell. so that element will try to find other elements that, need or want to get rid of electrons, and bond with them to get a full valance shell. then the element is happy. The inner electron shells of an element are complete an so they are stable.
Energy lost by an electron during its transition from an outer to an inner orbit is emitted as a flash of light called a?
Every element is positioned in sequence by atomic number, but they do fall into certain groups as a result. Iron is what is known as a transition state element. The transition state is defined by one characteristic, which is that there are incomplete inner electron shells. In all other elements, each shell is filled before electrons appear in the next shell farther out, but in transition state elements, it turns out that some inner shell…
All the transition elements have 2 electrons in their outer shell (4th energy level). If one element has one more electron than another, it is because it has one more electron in its inner shell (third energy level). So instead of adding an electron to the outer shell, transition metals with more electrons add it to their 3rd energy level. Therefore the number of electrons in the outer shell stays the same (2) and since…
