Why k shell has low energy than valence shell?

AnswerK-shell electrons generally have much larger binding energies than valence shell electrons. Can you give me a specific example or some more information to clarify your question? is energy level depend on electrons, i means is the shell having more electrons have more energy?

Is argon atom larger than potassium ion?

I would say no. The potassium atom has 1 valence electron which is in the 4th valence shell. To form the potassium ion, it gives away this electron - thus becoming K+. Now, it has no electrons in the 4th valence shell - they are all in the 3rd valence shell. Argon also has all of its electrons in the 3rd valence shell. Also, K+ now has the same number of electrons as Argon. The reason why, at least I would say, argon has a larger radius than K+ is that even though they are in the same valence shell and have the same number of electrons, argon has one less proton than K+. This means that argon's nucleus does not pull in its electrons with quite as much force as K+. Therefore, the electrons (on average) are not as close to the nucleus as with K+. At least, this is how I would reason this out.

What is a valence shell?

The valence shell is the outer most shell or imaginary orbit of an atom containing <8 electrons. The electrons in this shell are called 'valence electrons'.

Is valence electrons and valence the same thing?

Valence means outer-most.Valence electrons are the elctrons that are furthest from the nucleus (outermost electrons).Valence shell is the outer-most shell.Valence electrons are located in the valence shell.

How many valence electrons does vanadium have?

A valence electron is the number of electrons found in the outermost layer of an atom. An atom needs 8 valence electrons in order to be stable and undergo chemical reactions. Since vanadium is in period 4, it goes to the 4th shell, the N shell. When you draw the diagram you put 2 in the K shell, 8 in the L shell, 11 in the M shell, and 2 in the N shell. Most atoms should have 18 atoms in the M shell. Therefore, vanadium has 2 valence electrons.

How many valence electrons do nitrogen have in its first shell?

Nitrogen atoms do not have any valence electrons in their first shell, which is the innermost shell with only two electrons. No elements except hydrogen and helium have any valence electrons in this first shell. Nitrogen has 5 valence electrons in its valence shell, which is its second shell.
