A full outer ring, or valence shell, has 8 electrons, except for helium, which has 2 electrons.

a stable atom is and atom with a full outer ring. Its not the best picture

it is located on the outer ring of the atom

Sodium has one electron in its outer ring.

valance electrons because they are on the valance or outer ring of the atom so they can be shared with other atoms. atoms with an incomplete outer ring of valance electrons are more reactive then those with a full ring. Hope this helped this is what i am studying in science class at the moment, i find it very interesting actually and quite easy to comprehend. GOOD LUCK!

The outer (valance) ring is full.

Neon is a noble gas, therefore it is stable meaning that its outer energy ring is full. It has 8 elections on its outer energy level. Check out the related link for a picture of a model of Neons atom.

There are a total of three electrons in the lithium atom (Z = 3). There is one in the outer ring.

The atom wants to have eight or full electrons in its outer valence ring... so if it has four electrons in its outer shell it has the choice of loosing four electrons or finding four electrons somewhere else (whichever is the easiest for it to bond with).

Valence electrons are the electrons in the outer ring, or "electron shell" of an atom.

If an atom loses an electron, its charge becomes a positive. (The process of losing an electron is called OXIDATION, by the way.) Depending on the electron configuration, the atom could become "happy" (because its outer ring is now empty) or it could want to bond with another atom to fill ALL of the spots on its outer electron ring.

All atoms are hungry to have a full "ring" of electrons. Since hydrogen has 1 electon in its only ring it wants more. To have a complete ring an atom must have 2 in the first ring 8 in the second and third and fourth and so on. That is why alkali metals and halogens are so reactive, they have only 1 electron in their outer "ring." They're really not rings or obits but that is the best way to explain this.

In an Oxygen Atom there are two rings on which the Electrons orbit around the Nucleus, there is the inner ring and the outer ring. The inner ring closest to the Nucleus contains two Electrons and on the outer ring there are six Electrons making a total of eight Electrons, which is equal to the amount of Neutrons and Protons in the Nucleus (8 Neutrons, 8 Protons). This should answer the Question.

It has the same number of electrons circling around the outer ring of the atom.

The electrons in the atom are found on the outer rings, the limit of 2 on the first up to 8 on the valence ring. The number of the electrons found on the valence ring determines where the chemical is placed on the periodic table.

The outer ring is either n=the number of ring it is, or just plain say "the outer shell." The proper term is VALENCE, the outermost shell = valence shell, outermost electrons = valence electrons

There are 7 electrons in the outer "ring" of bromine.

Ions are the formation of unbalanced atoms due to an attraction caused by a near completion of an electron ring in one atom and extra or valence electrons in the outer ring of another. If an atom gains an extra electron its over all charge is negative and the opposite is true for the atom gaining an electron.

all atoms want a full ring of outer electrons, in the first ring this is 2 in the second this is 8, for the others it's slightly more complex. A groups group number tells you how many elactrons in has in the outer shell. Group 8 already has a full outer ring of electrons so doesn't react with others. The rest need to share, gain or lose electrons for example Lithium is in group one it needs to lose a electron to have a full outer ring Fluorine is in group 7 so it wants an elctron so they react together and Lithium gives it's electron to Flourine.

Kentwood is it's own township, but is widely considered a outer ring suburb of Grand Rapids.

the inside ring, the outer ring is double

it is the ring around the nucleus of an atom which contains electrons in the first shell there are 2 in the second there are 8 '' '' third '' '' '' in the outer shell there are 2

Iodine has seven electrons in the outer ring and has a negative one charge.

The name of the ring is called the epidermis, which protects the outer layer of the carrot.

If you want to finish the ring one you have to get to blue ring in the inside then move the outer colors so they match the ring on the outer outer colors (and i mean outer outer colors) then click on the inner blue circle and it should be done.
