How many electrons does an atom in the halogen family usually gains or shares?
One electron. Read More
The number of electron that halogen family can gain is one electron Read More
the Oxygen family usually gains/shares two electrons when reacting (combining, ECT.) The Halogen family (next to the oxygen family on the periodic table of elements) usually gains/shares one. The nitrogen family (also next to the oxygen family) gains/shares three electrons when reacting. The nobel gasess, on the far right, usually dont react at all and (it is said) that they gain/share nothing at all. You can probably view some of these patterns on a periodic… Read More
The Halogen family. All but one of the halogens are nonmetals, and all share similar properties. A halogen atom has 7 valence electrons and typically gains or shares one electron when it reacts. Hope this helped. Read More
In the ground state, it has 82 electrons. It usually only shares two of those electrons into an ionic bond. Read More

In a covalently bonded molecule the number of electrons that an atom shares with others is usually equal to the number of electrons?
needed to give it to a noble gas arrangement Read More
"Shares electrons" is a characteristic of covalent bonds, which form covalent compounds. Read More
Carbon bonds with other atoms through covalent bonds, which is when an atom shares electrons with another atom. Carbon has four electrons available for covalent bonding. Read More
it shares one of its electrons to the other atom thusly gaining or losing charge Read More
Covalent bonds SHARE electrons. Ionic bonds TRANSFER electrons. Read More
The elements below Boron in group 13 generally give electrons to form ions, although they can form covalent compounds. Boron forms covalent bonds rather than ionic so it shares electrons. Read More
Hydrogen atoms share electrons in a covalent bond. Read More
How many electrons are in the outermost energy level of a oxygen atom as it shares electrons with hydrogen atoms as a part of a water molecule?
The covalent bonds that oxygen shares with hydrogen gives it a full outer shell of 8 electrons. Read More
How many electrons are in the outermost energy level of an oxygen atom as shares electrons with hydrogen atoms as part of a water molecule?
Eight. Oxygen has 6 electrons and shares two more with the hydrogen atoms in covalent bonds Read More
Carbon atom generally shares 4 electrons in its covalent compounds. Read More
It gains three, loses five, or shares pairs of electrons Read More
Mercury easily shares its valence electrons Read More
Yes, H20 is a covalent compound, therefore it shares electrons when it bonds. Read More
It is not that way. Carbon gains electrons while a chemical reaction to have 8 shells in the outermost orbit. Though it has 4 electrons in the outermost orbit, it usually gains four electrons or shares four electrons while a chemical reaction. eg hydrocarbons methane butane propane. Read More
Hydrogen shares its electrons to complete the octate so it gains 1 electrons. it can also its electrons. Read More
A polar covalent bond shares electrons unequally. Because of this unequal sharing, one end of the molecule is slightly positive, and the other end slightly negative. Read More
The sharing of electrons occurs in covalent bonding. Read More
This is done, usually, only by the company that issued the shares. Read More
Nonpolar molecules are molecules that shares electrons equally and does not have oppositely charged ends. Polar molecules are molecules with a slightly positive end and a slightly negative end as a result of electrons being shared unequally. Read More
oxygen has 6 electrons in the outer shell...which means it shares one electron with hydrogen, and chlorine shares one electron with oxygen. now oxygen and chlorine have 8 electrons. Read More
This is a molecule having a covalent bond. Read More
this is a strange bond that forms (for example) with CO, carbon monoxide when the octet rule cannot be satsified by ordinary means. covalent bonds require all atoms get a full orbital of electrons. they share the valence electrons to do so. Carbon has 4 valence electrons, oxygen has six. to combine them together, with carbon dioxide, it's easy to see how the carbon shares two valence electrons with each oxygen, and the oxygen shares… Read More
each oxygen shares two electrons, resulting in 4 electrons shared Read More
Carbon is the "utility player" of chemistry, and can bond in many different ways with other elements. It generally shares electrons covalently with other non-metals, usually hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen. It doesn't typically lose or gain them (but can in certain situations.) Read More
How many electrons are in outermost energy level of an oxygen atom as it shares electrons with hydrogen atoms as part of a water molecule?
counting the shared electrons, 8. Read More
When an atom gains or loses electrons it becomes ionized, & is called an ion. Read More
