There are actually three transition metals with only one ionic charge.

The three are...

  • Silver(Ag) plus one charge
  • Cadmium (Cd) plus two charge
  • Zinc (Zn) plus two charge

How can you use the word stable to explain why the alkali metals tend to lose valence electrons?

Alkali metals, have only one valence electron so they will "want" to lose it to achieve a stable electron arrangement.


Why are alkali metals more reactive than other metals?

Alkali metals are more reactive as they are in group 1 and therefore has only one valence electron. With only one valence electron, its easy for them to achieve inert configuration/ noble gas configuration, which makes them so reactive.


What is the family name that has only 1 valence electron?

Group 1, which are the Alkali Metals.

How many valence electrons does the element cesium have?

A cesium atom has 1 valence electron. It is an alkali metal, and all alkali metals have 1 valence electron. The electron configuration for cesium is (Rn)7s1. The single electron in the 7s sublevel is its valence electron.


Do alkali metals only have one proton for bonding?

they have one valence electron (not proton) that is involved in chemical bonding.


Which element is most likely to lose an electron?

Lithium would be most likely to lose electrons in a chemical bond.


What is the number of valance electrons in atoms from alkali metals?

they have one valence electron. this is why they are so highly reactive and cannot be found pure in nature.


What are features of the alkali metals?

Alkali metals have only one valence electron and all of these elements are highly reactive. All of them are metals. Except lithium, other elements can be cut by a blade. They have a lesser density than water.


What chemical property of Group 1 metals that results from the atoms of each metal having only one valence electron.?

Alkali metals are very reactive.
