What is the numbers of electrons that an atom is in the oxygen family usally shares or gains?
the Oxygen family usually gains/shares two electrons when reacting (combining, ECT.) The Halogen family (next to the oxygen family on the periodic table of elements) usually gains/shares one. The nitrogen family (also next to the oxygen family) gains/shares three electrons when reacting. The nobel gasess, on the far right, usually dont react at all and (it is said) that they gain/share nothing at all. You can probably view some of these patterns on a periodic… Read More
each oxygen shares two electrons, resulting in 4 electrons shared Read More
oxygen has 6 electrons in the outer shell...which means it shares one electron with hydrogen, and chlorine shares one electron with oxygen. now oxygen and chlorine have 8 electrons. Read More
How many electrons are in the outermost energy level of a oxygen atom as it shares electrons with hydrogen atoms as a part of a water molecule?
The covalent bonds that oxygen shares with hydrogen gives it a full outer shell of 8 electrons. Read More
How many electrons are in the outermost energy level of an oxygen atom as shares electrons with hydrogen atoms as part of a water molecule?
Eight. Oxygen has 6 electrons and shares two more with the hydrogen atoms in covalent bonds Read More
2 pairs of electrons because it has 6 valence electrons so it shares 2 to make 8 pairs Read More
this is a strange bond that forms (for example) with CO, carbon monoxide when the octet rule cannot be satsified by ordinary means. covalent bonds require all atoms get a full orbital of electrons. they share the valence electrons to do so. Carbon has 4 valence electrons, oxygen has six. to combine them together, with carbon dioxide, it's easy to see how the carbon shares two valence electrons with each oxygen, and the oxygen shares… Read More

A larger oxygen atom shares electrons with smaller hydrogen atoms what kind of molecule does this form?

In Chemistry, the family number tells you how many electrons the element gives, gains, or shares. It also tells you how many valance electrons you have. In addition and subtraction, number families include two lesser numbers and one greatest number (also called the smaller and larger numbers) such as 4+3=7 and 7-4=3 Read More
The number of electron that halogen family can gain is one electron Read More
Oxygen is reactive because it needs to gain two more electrons to fill its outermost shell while neon's outermost shell is completely full of electrons. In more technical terms, neon has an octet of electrons whcih makes it inert. Neon forms no known compounds. Oxygen has 6 valence electrons and reacts to "achieve" the octet. This can be by either forming ionic bonds where it gains two electrons to form the oxide ion, O2- or… Read More
Covalent compounds are a type of compound where two nonmetals combine, by sharing electrons. For nonmetals to become stable they usually require 1,2 or 3 more electrons. Hence when two nonmetals combine, they can share electrons. For example the covalent compound Carbon Dioxide has a formula of CO2 that is 1 carbon and two oxygen atoms. Carbon needs 4 more electrons while oxygen only needs two more. Hence each oxygen forms a double covalent bond… Read More
Each Hydrogen atom shares 1 electron with the Oxygen atom. Read More
Yes it does. Each fluorine shares one electron with oxygen. So fluorine as well as oxygen will have 8 valence electrons. Read More
Oxygen and Hydrogen are held together by a covalent bond. This is because the Oxygen atom shares one of its' electrons with the Hydrogen atom. Read More
Carbon shares all four of it's electron to the oxygen therefore giving them 'full electron clcouds.' Read More
The hydrogen and oxygen are covalently bonded which means that they share their electrons. Each hydrogen shares 1 electron with the oxygen and each oxygen shares 1 electron with each hydrogen. Since no electrons are being added to from outside and each atom in the water molecule starts out as neutral, the molecule as a whole must be neutral. Water does have partial charges due to the fact that oxygen pulls the electrons in the… Read More
In water molecules there are 2 atoms of hydrogen of and 1 atom of oxygen present. each hydrogen atom shares 1 electron with the oxygen atom. So the total number of electrons shared with oxygen are 2,total no. of electrons shared by hydrogen is 2 and the total no. of electrons shared by each hydrogen atom is 1. Read More
In carbon dioxide each oxygen atom shares four electrons with the carbon atoms what is this type of bond called?
polar covalent Read More
Yes, as it shares its two unpaired electrons with the two hydrogen atoms. Read More
One electron. Read More
The bond between carbon and oxygen is moderately strong. This results from the fact that oxygen has a stronger attraction for electrons (in other words a higher electronegativity) than carbon does, so if carbon shares its electrons with oxygen, there is much less energy expended upon pulling the electrons away from a carbon atom, than the energy that is gained by giving them to an oxygen atom. Read More
CO draw 2 of the electrons to the left of carbon then 2 to the right and then draw 2 electrons of oxygen to its left and then the other 4 around the other sides of oxygen and draw a circle around the 2 electrons shared with carbon and the 6 existing electrons of oxygen then draw a circle around the 4 electrons carbon has and the 2 it shares with oxygen and after you've… Read More
shells : 2 (1st shell), 8 (2nd shell), 8 (3rd shell) electrons... it shares if its outer shell has too many or too little electrons Read More
2 electrons. Hydrogen "shares" its electron (1 per atom) with the oxygen molecule, which results in all three having a complete outer electron shell. Read More
"Shares electrons" is a characteristic of covalent bonds, which form covalent compounds. Read More
Fresh oxygen is always in atomic state ( element form) but oxygen is a highly reactive element so it quickly combines with another oxygen atom to form a molecule consisting of two oxygen atoms. Oxygen has 6 electrons in its outer most shell, so it required 2 electrons to get an octet so it shares 2 electrons with another oxygen atom and forms a double covalent bond. O = O ---- O2 Read More
Atoms bond covalently by sharing one or more pairs of electrons Each pair of electrons make one covalent bond Oxygen has 6 electrons in its outer shell How many pairs of electrons are shared in O2?
O2 shares two electron pairs, giving both oxygen atoms 8 electrons on the outer shell (noble gas configuration). Read More
One oxygen atom shares electrons with two hydrogen atoms to create a water molecule. Read More
A large oxygen atom shares electrons with smaller hydrogen atoms. what kind of molecule does this form?
This describes the formation of a covalent molecule/bond. Read More
2 covalent bonds. The oxygen atom needs to gain two valence electrons, so it shares with two other atoms to reach this. Read More
In a water molecule, the oxygen atom shares electrons with two hydrogen atoms, but it does not share equally since it has a stronger attraction for electrons than the hydrogen atom does, and the electrons therefore have a greater probability of being close to the oxygen nucleus than to the hydrogen nuclei. As a result, the oxygen atom has a negative charge. The hydrogen atoms are positively charged. Read More
Forms when two atoms share one or more pairs of electrons. Water is the most popular covalent bond. Oxygen shares two of hydrogens electrons. H(subscript)2O Read More
oxygen contains 6 electrons in its outermost shell contains ,to complete its octet it shares 2 electrons and hence form two covalent bonds(1 sigma and 1 pi bond). Read More
Water is an example of a neutral oxide compound, a compound with simple molecular structure. H2O is a covalent compound. We know that covalent compounds don't gain or loose electrons but they share electrons between the atoms.Hydrogen shares one electron that is in its first shell so 2 hydrogen atoms are required to make a covalent bond with oxygen which shares its 2 electrons each with one hydrogen atom. so the reaction is as follows… Read More
It has one, double bond. An Oxygen atom has an electronic configuration of (2,6) in other words, there are 2 electrons in the lowest shell, closest to the nucleus, and then 6 outer (valence) electrons. To become totally stable, the Oxygen atom must gain 2 electrons to complete it's highest energy level, so in this instance it shares 2 electrons with another Oxygen atom to make O2 Read More
