i need to know this information and much more information for school. and i wish you can help me on it. what does a dot diagram show? what are two things a dot diagram must show? how can the group number help in determining the number of valence electrons? what is true for the dot diagram for every element in a group? what is helium's dot diagram? why is helium's dot diagram different? what do electron configurations show? how is the total number of electrons for an aton determined? what do all the number in the electron configuration equal to? why is knowing the period an element is in necessary to write a correct electron configuration? what does the group number tell us about the electron configuration? what are the electron configurations of Lithium (Li), Carbon (C), Magnesium (Mg), Silicon (Si), Chlorine (Cl), Potassium (K)?

Go to Google and click on "Images". Search for "Dot diagram of mercury". The first image will show the Lewis Dot Diagram of the said element.

I dont't know why are you asking me?

There are two types of diagrams one is the Lewis diagram the other is the Electron dot diagram. To make the electron dot diagram you put the electron symbol and put a dot on one of the sides for each period (you don't count the middle section.) . . :Ne: = Neon dot diagram ' '

How to draw it: Have one dot in the middle and draw two circles around it. On the circle closest to the middle have two dots on it. Have eight on the outside circle.
