A maximum of 18; 2 in the s subshell, 6 in the p subshell, and 10 in the d subshell.
first shell - 2 electronssecond shell - 8 electronsthird shell - 18 electronsfourth shell - 32 electronsfifth shell - 50 electronssixth shell - 72 electronsseventh shell - 98 electronseighth shell - 128 electronsninth shell - 162 electronstenth shell - 200 electronsetc.The general formula for the number of electrons in shell n is 2*(n**2).
The number of electrons that can go into any given principal quantum number (shell) n is 2n2. So there are 8 electrons in the second shell, and 18 in the third.
the number of electrons found in the third shell of an helium atom are nill because its atomic number is 2
18 electrons are present in third shell
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.
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.
Sulfur has six electrons in its third electron shell.
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...
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
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?
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.
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.
the first shell: 2 electrons The second shell: 8 electrons The third shell: 18 electrons The fourth shell: 3 electrons
3s^2 3p^6 3d^10 18 electron altogether in the third shell.
Simply add the number of electrons. 2 + 8 + 6 = 16 electrons The element that has 16 electrons is Sulfur.
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.
2n2 is the maximum number of electrons in each shell where 'n' is the number of the shell. 1st shell - 2 electrons2nd shell - 8 electrons3rd shell - 18 electronsand so on
No, its two electrons in the first, 8 electrons in the 2nd and 3rd shell if its stable
That is the number of valence electrons, which are he electrons on the outer shell (That can be any shell, not a specific outer shell)
Chlorine has 17 electrons, distributed in the following way: 2 in first shell 8 in second shell 7 in third (outer) shell Therefore Chlorine has 7 electrons in its outer shell.
The number of electrons in a shell is 2n2, where n=shell number. So for the first shell, there is a maximum of 2 electrons.
Total electrons = 17First shell = 2Second Shell = 8Third shell = 7
First shell = 2 electrons Third shell = 8 electrons Fourth shell = 18 electrons Fifth shell = 18 electrons Sixth shell = 32 electrons Seventh shell = 32 electrons (Used by calculating differences in atomic numbers of Noble Gases)
