Boron has 3 valence electrons.

Borondoesn't follow the octet rule in that many of its compounds are electron deficient. The B has 3 valence electronsand each F has 7 valence electrons, so 3*7=21+3 is 24 valence electrons in total. As the Lewis diagram will reveal, the B is connected to 3 atomsand has no lone pairs, thus sp2.

Well, look at the group(vertical) on a periodic table and you'll find group 3A. The group number tells how many valence electrons not how many electrons in an element. So Boron(B) Aluminum(Al) Gallium(Ga) Indium(In) Thallium(Tl) will all have 3 valence electrons. The atomic # tells the total # of electrons in an element.

Boron has 2 shells altogether. 2 electrons on the first one and the remaining three on the second. Altogether boron (B) has 5 electrons.

Boron has 3 electrons in the outer shell and 2 electrons in the inner.

Look at their Atomic Valence Shell Diagrams. When an Atom resides in the first column, like Na, it has 'a valence of +1'. If it is in the 2nd column like Mg, 2 valence electrons. If its in the middle part, you probably don't have to worry about it yet. If its in the column with B (Boron), 3 valence electrons. In the column with Carbon (C) four valence electrons. In the column with P (Phosphorus), 5 valence electrons. In the Column with O (Oxygen) 6 valence electrons. The column with F (Fluorine) has 7 valence electrons. The column on the very end has a full shell of valence electrons so they dont/rarely ever react.

It is just named the boron group. The elements in the group are boron (B), aluminum (Al), gallium (Ga), indium (In), thallium (Tl), and unumtrium (Uut) (scienticially prepared). The boron group all have 3 electrons in their valence levels making them an unstable group.

H, Li, Na, K = 1valence electrons Be, Mg, Ca = 2 valence electrons B, Al = 3 valence electrons C, Si = 4 valence electrons N, P = 5 valence electrons O, S = 6 valence electrons F, Cl = 7 valence electrons He, Ne. Ar = 0 because they are noble gases and all their electron shells are full

Electronic configuration of B is 1s2 2s2 2p1 So valence shell is 2p

I think that's B, the symbol for the element boron. Boron has 5 protons and 5 electrons. The most common isotope has 6 neutrons. The other main isotope has only 5 neutrons.

The element with chemical symbol B is Boron. Boron is a Metalloid in Group 13 of the Periodic Table. It has 5 electrons in 2 shells with 3 electrons in the outer shell.

Boron, B, has an electronic configuration of 1s2 2s2 2p1. With 3 electrons boron can form 3 single covalent bonds. This explains why boron has a valency of 3. It forms trihalides such as BCl3 which is planar and boron is sp2 hybridised.

a) Valence electrons means the electrons present in the outermost orbit of an atom. b) Valence electrons means the outer shellof an atom, which determine its power to combine with other elements.

Boron has 5 electrons. The symbol on the Periodic table is B. The atomic number is 5 and the atomic weight is 10.811.

The symbol of a boron atom is "B", and the number of electrons in a neutral atom is the same as the number of protons, which equals the atomic number of boron: 5.

It would have 5 electrons and it would be B-Boron,because only that electron has 5 protons and 5 electrons.

all the elements in 3A group have three valance electrons.Elements of group IIIA have three valence electrons: B, Al, Ga, etc. form 3+ charged ions.The group 13 elements all have 3 valence electrons. This group has previously been known as the earth metals and the triels. The elements in this group include boron, aluminum, gallium, indium, thallium, and ununtrium.

You will know the number of valence electrons in an element just by looking on its group in the Periodic Table.Group refers to the 8 columns in a periodic table (transition metals are not included). For example : Na (sodium) has 1 valence electron since it belongs to group 1, while B (boron) has 3 valence electron since it belongs to group 3.

Boron (symbol B, atom number 5) is build up with:5 protons, 5 electrons and 5 or 6 neutrons, depending on the mass number of the two possible isotopes: B-(10) has 5 neutrons and B-(11) has 6 of them respectively.

Boron (B) has 3 electrons in its outer shell, just like the other members of the 3A family. Boron's outer electrons are 2s2 2p1.

Well, Be has 2 valence electrons and Br has 7, so 2+7(2)= 16 valence electrons. Now, the structure would be B----Be----B. The B atoms would have 6 lone electrons on each, but the Be is an exception to the octet rule and only requires 4 electrons to fill its valence shell. Thus this is the Lewis structure
