Valence Electrons and Core Electrons

Valence Electrons and Core Electrons

Description:
  1. Explain how to identify the number of valence electrons an element has from its electron configuration.

  2. Explain how to identify the number of valence electrons an element has based on its position on the periodic table.

  3. State that valance electrons are those farthest from the nucleus and are most likely to interact with other atoms.

This packet should help a learner seeking to understand valence electrons.
