How many energy levels are filled in a nitrogen atom?
The first energy level is completely filled, the second part filled. Electronic configuration is 1s2, 2s2 2p3
It depends on what element the atom is. For example if it is Hydrogen it has one ring or energy level. The higher the element's atomic number is on the periodic table the more energy levels it will have. Actually, every atom has an infinite number of energy levels. Yes, hydrogen has as many as plutonium or gold. The difference is how many of these levels are filled with electrons. When asking about how many…
The first 3 energy levels are filled, the 4s and 4p and 4d sublevels are filled, and the 5s and 5p sublevels are also filled. So only the first three energy levels are completely filled. The fourth and fifth energy levels are partly filled. The electron configuration is 1s22s22p63s23p63d104s24p64d105s25p6 or [Kr]4d105s25p6.
Which atom is more chemically reactive an atom with a partly filled energy level or an atom with all energy levels completely filled and why?
Electrons in a atom arrange themselves into different levels, filling up from low energy near the nucleus to high energy away from the nucleus. As each level fills, the atom becomes stable and will not react easily with other atoms. Neon happens to have filled energy levels and thus is very stable and unable to react.
the basic structure of an atom without getting into really advanced and/or theoretical physics is this: at the center of an atom is a nucleus. because of the size of the nucleus, it exerts an attractive force. in orbitals, or 3-d "rings" around the nucleus, there are electrons. there can be several orbitals in one atom. sometimes, these orbitals are referred to as "energy levels." each energy level is sort of like the sections of…
How does the energy of a photon compare in difference in energy levels of the atom from which it is emitted?
The second and third energy levels of an atom each contain 8 electrons. That is why there are eight elements on the second row (Lithium, Beryllium, Boron, Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Fluorine, and Neon) and third row (Sodium, Magnesium, Aluminum, Silicon, Potassium, Sulfur, Chlorine, and Argon) of the periodic table.
An energy level is the fixed amount of energy that a system described by quantum mechanics, such as a molecule, atom, electron, or nucleus, can have. There are no full energy levels in an atom of hydrogen. The first energy level of any atom can hold 2 electrons. Hydrogen only has one electron and it is in the first energy level.
