The element sulfur is element number 16, and has 6 electrons in the 3rd orbital level : 3s2, 3p4.
Sulfur has six valence electrons.
The sulfur atom has 16 electrons around its orbitals. The third energy level is the most tightly bound to the nucleus.
In chemical bonding, only the valence shell electrons participate in reactions in general conditions. Sulfur has 6 electrons in its third energy level, outermost shell. Therefore the highest oxidation number for sulfur is +6.
Electron arrangement makes it easy to know the number of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms. Carbon, hydrogen, fluorine, argon, sulfur and magnesium have 4, 1, 7, 8, 6 and 2 electrons in their outermost energy levels respectively.
there are fourty nine trust me
The answer is 16 Nicole Wickens
I'm not completely sure but i think it is the number of electron rings. Sulfur has three.

8 is the maximum number in the outermost energy level!
The quantum number for that energy level.
Sulfur has 6 electrons in the outermost energy level as its electronic configuration is 2, 8, 6.
The maximum number of D orbitals in a principal energy level is 5. The maximum number of electrons in the second principal energy level is 8.
The maximum number of electrons that an energy level can hold is determined from the formula 2n^2 equals the total number, where n is the energy level.
The formula to determine the number of electrons in an energy level is 2n2, where n is the number of the energy level. For the fifth energy level, n=5. So the total number of electrons possible in the fifth energy level is 2(52) = 50.
The orbital will be described with a number, followed by a letter, which may have a suffix. The number is the principal energy level. For example 2p, principal energy level 2; 5d principal energy level 5; 1s principal energy level 1.
2n2 where n is the energy level
the inner energy level of an atom has a maximum # of
there i 2 electrons in the first energy level.
sulfide=sulfur+2 electrons(to fill the outermost energy level) sulfur=16 protons-16 electrons=0 (which is newtrons) sulfide=16 protons-18 electrons(by adding 2 electrons to fill the outermost energy level) =-2
