The valence electron configuration of Pb is [Xe] 4f14 5d10 6s2 6p2, or 2, 8, 18, 32, 18, 4 electrons per shell. It has four valence electrons in the outermost shell. Lead is placed in group 14 or p-block and Period 6 of ... More »

Nitrogen has five electrons in its valence shell. The valence shell is the outer shell of an atom, and its electrons are prone to break away from the atom and become free electrons or latch on to another atom. More »

The element palladium has 10 valence electrons in its outermost shell, the 4d shell. Many elements follow the octet rule, where they are considered having a full outer shell when there are eight electrons. Transition met... More »

The orbital notation or electron configuration for potassium is 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 4s1 or 2, 8, 8 and 1 electrons per shell. The atomic number of potassium is 19, and thus it has 19 electrons and 19 protons. More »

Calculating the ionization energy of atoms is a simple process that requires basic knowledge of the electron configuration arrived at through Koopman's theory. Ionization energy is the energy an electron takes to detach ... More »

Nitrogen has five valence electrons. Valence electrons are the negatively charged particles found in the outer energy level of an atom, and are required to form chemical bonds. More »

Strontium has two valence electrons. It lies in the family of elements called the alkaline earth metals. Strontium never exists as a pure element in nature and is usually found in the minerals celestite and strontianite. More »
