The result is that chlorine will very often form a compound in which it has eight
electrons in its outer shell (a complete octet). A sodium atom has a single

element. It tells you the mass of one atom, how many pieces are inside, and
where it should be ... In the next section we're going to cover electron orbitals or
electron shells. ... share each of their electrons to fill the outer shell of the
Valence electrons refer to the amount of electrons in the outer shell of an atom. ...
A single phosphorus atom has 15 electrons and protons, as well as usually
having ... Its electron configuration is 1s2 2s2p6 3s2p6, so it has three filled

A nitrogen atom can therefore achieve an octet of valence electrons by ... It is
difficult to imagine a living system that does not contain nitrogen, which is an ...
Animals pick up the nitrogen they need from the plants or other animals in their
diet. ..... Phosphorus can expand its valence shell to hold more than eight
Atoms gain or lose electrons to get eight electrons in their outer shell. Elements ...
All chemical reactions occur between electrons in the outer energy level of atoms
