Summary: Electrons can adopt different shapes travelling around the nucleus. These include s, p, d and f. These patterns are described as orbitals. These orbitals get larger as they progress fro s to f. the p orbital can exist in three orientations that … Read More
Summary: The New Definition of Organic is the study of Carbon molecules. The geography of the atom is discussed including protons, neutrons and electrons; as well as the definition of Atomic Number (Z) and Mass Number (A). Key Words: Organic … Read More
The arrangement of the Periodic Table allows us to easily locate the elements with the same number of valency electrons, found in each group and the start of each shell at the left of each row.
Valence electrons are electrons of the outer shell, Silicon will be used as an example. The Octet rule states that electrons will be gained or lost (in the case of Ionic bonds) or shared (in the case of covalent bonds) … Read More
