Valence shell electrons or valence electrons determine the chemical properties of an atom...

Valence electrons are responsible for the chemical properties of elements.

Valence electrons are very important for the chemical properties of chemical elements; but all electrons have identical sizes.

The valence electrons influence many properties and characteristics of a material. The properties of a material which are influenced by the valence electrons are chemical properties, electrical conductivity, some mechanical properties, the nature of inter atomic bonding, atom size, and optical characteristics.

the valence electrons cause the chemical reations. the valence electrons decide that element attract to which element.

The valence electrons of an element are mainly what determine an element's properties.

the valence electrons as the valence electrons only take part in a chemical reaction

They are determined by the number of valence electrons in their valence shells.

They are the primary determinants of the chemical properties of atoms.

Group number describes the number of valence electrons. It helps in estimating chemical properties of that element.For example-group-1 elements have 1 valence electronThe group number of an element is equal to the number of valence electrons. The number of valence electrons is responsible for the chemical properties. So the chemical properties of the element can be determined by the group number.

One of the properties of metals is their tendency to lose valence electrons, in order for another metal to have complete valence electrons.

the valence electrons are responsible for an element's reactivity, it also determines where an element is in the periodic table.

Valence electrons determine the reactivity of the element.

Looking at the periodic table you can determine how many valence electrons an element has. The number of valence electrons determines many of the properties of elements.

When moving down a group, the number of valence electrons do not change. This similarity yields the elements in the same groups to have same chemical properties. For example, elements in group 17 obtain one electron to stabilize as -1 ion.In a group, all the elements have a same number of valence electrons. So their chemical properties are equal. But the physical properties vary.Valence electrons are the electrons in outermost shell.The valence electrons remain same in a group. For example-Group-1 elements have 1 valence electron.

Valence electrons are the electrons on the outermost shell, so they're the ones that will see the most bonding action. How electrons bond says a lot about an element's properties.

have the same number of valence electrons, need the same number of electrons to fill their valence shells

Fluorine and bromine have 7 valence electrons and hence their properties are similar. Neon has 8 valence electrons and the properties are different from that of fluorine.

Yes, only the outermost s and p orbital electrons are valence electrons, no other electrons influence chemical properties or participate in chemical bonds.

The same number of valence electrons.
