"The electron dot diagram is used by scientists to represent electron sharing. The chemical symbol is in the center to represent the nucleus and inner energy level. Dots surrounding the symbol represents the valence electrons."
that is the electron dot Diagram.. Sorry, i cant do more than that....
You write Zn and then you put one dot on top (or bottom) and one on the left (or right) like this for example:
(the reason why you have 2 dots is because zinc has only two valence electrons)
The dot diagram for lead is:
● Pb ●
its outer shell has two electrons so you would put two dots, one on top and one on bottom.
It is the symbol Pb with four dots around the outside.
. Pb .
Bad question. It doesn't have such a diagram.
Electron dot diagrams are for chemical compounds, anyway,
and antimony is an element.

The electron dot, or Lewis dot diagram for xenon is the symbol Xe surrounded by four pairs of dots, representing eight valence electrons. Refer to the related link for an illustration.
I had a science question that asked: An electron ______ is the chemical symbol for the element surrounded by as many dots as there are electrons in its outer energy level. That is pretty much the same as yours. I put dot diagram... Meaning electron dot diagram
The elements that have 5 electrons in the dot diagram means that they have 5 valence electrons. These elements are found in group 5A. Elements include, nitrogen, phosphorus, arsenic, antimony, and bismuth.
The science of atoms and chemical bonding is extremely complicated. Real-life electron density diagrams in a molecule of hydrogen gas for example show how the electrons whizz around the two hydrogen nuclei in a very complex fashion. Obviously, when one is just learning about chemistry, or needs to present a model of atomic structure that is clear, the dot and cross diagram is superb. Let's use the element Lithium, Li as an example. It has one valence (outer-shell) electron, thus it would possess one dot in such a diagram. A molecule of chlorine gas, Cl2, will have a dot and cross diagram where the atoms' outer shells overlap, with two dots in between the overlap, representing the bond. This is a very hard topic to discuss in terms of prose alone; textbooks such as Winter- Chemical Bonding, will provide diagrams that will further embellish what I've discussed here.
There are 3 shells. The first containing 2 electrons then the second containing 8 electrons and the third(the valence shell) containing 7. In total it has 17 electrons. This should help:
Lewis structure, electron dot diagram, electron dot structure...
1. An electron dot diagram can show you that the symbols for an element surrounded by dots. Each dot stands for one valence electron.
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 do you draw an electron dot diagram for silicon
Yes, the dots in an electron dot diagram represent valence electrons.
Yes of course, electron dot diagrams can be drawn for all elements.
