How many electrons are present in the outer shell of an atom with an atomic number of 14 and an atomic weight of 29?

Atomic number is the number of protons. In a neutral atom, the number of protons is equal to the number of electrons. So, in your example, the number of electrons in this atom is 14. The first energy shell can take 2 electrons, the second energy shell can take 8 electrons, and the third energy shell can take 18 electrons. If there are 14 total electrons, 10 would be found in the first two energy shells, leaving 4 for the third energy shell.


How many electrons are in the outter shell of magnessium?

There are 12 electrons in the electron shell of magnesium, the same number as protons. As for the outermost shell, it would be 3s2, meaning there are two electrons in the third "s" shell.

How many electrons are in the first ten shells of an atom?

The number of electrons in any given shell can be represented by 2n2, where n = the shell number. The first shell has 2, second has 8, third has 18...


How many of protons and electrons in each shell of sulfur?

firstly the protons are in the nucleus of an atom. there are 16 protons there. the number of electrons is the same as the number of protons. the electron arrangement is as follows: first shell-2 electrons second shell - 8 electrons third shell - 6 electrons this can also be written as 2,8,6


How many of atoms are in the 3rd shell of an atom with 4 shells?

If you are asking about the number of electrons then it would be 8. The first shell can hold a maximum number of 2 electrons. The second and third shell would have a maximum of 8 electrons each.

What has 2 electrons 1st shell 8 electrons 2nd shell 6 electrons 3rd shell?


Can the first orbital shell of an atom hold up to 6 electrons?

No it can only hold up to 2. You have a rule for finding the maximum of electrons in every single shell. It is 2 *(shellnumber)2. Shell number 1 = 2 electrons Shell number 2 = 8 electrons Shell number 3 = 18 electrons Shell number 4 = 32 electrons Shell number 5 = 50 electrons Shell number 6 = 72 electrons Shell number 7 = 98 electrons Shell number above does for the moment not exist.


What has 2 electrons in the first shell 8 electrons in the second shell and 6 electrons in the third?

That is a total of 16 electrons. Assuming that this is a neutral atom, the number of electrons = the number of protons. Therefore, this atom has 16 protons, which is its atomic number. The element with atomic number 16 is sulfur.


Which element has 2 electrons in the first shell 8 electrons in the second shell and 6 electrons in the third shell?

Sulfur

the first shell: 2 electrons The second shell: 8 electrons The third shell: 18 electrons The fourth shell: 3 electrons


What is the maximum number of electrons in the third valence shell?

3s^2 3p^6 3d^10 18 electron altogether in the third shell.


Which element has 2 electons in the first shell 8 in the second shell and 6 in the third shell?

Simply add the number of electrons. 2 + 8 + 6 = 16 electrons The element that has 16 electrons is Sulfur.


How many electrons can the first second and third shell hold?

2n2 is the general formula where n is the number of shell. So the maximum number of electrons in 1st, 2nd and 3rd shell are 2, 8 and 18 respectively.
