QUESTION

# What are some examples of valence electrons?

The are the electrons that determine the most typical patterns for an element.

These electrons are found in the s and p orbitals of the highest energy level (row of the periodic table) for the element.

Using the for each element we can determine the .

Na - Sodium 1s^2 2s^2 2p^6 3s^1 Sodium has 1 valence electron from the 3s orbital

P - Phosphorus 1s^2 2s^2 2p^6 3s^2 3p^3 Phosphorus has 5 valence electrons 2 from the 3s and 3 from the 3p

Fe - Iron 1s^2 2s^2 2p^6 3s^2 3p^6 4s^2 3d^6 Iron has 2 valence electrons from the 4s

Br - Bromine 1s^2 2s^2 2p^6 3s^2 3p^6 4s^2 3d^10 4p^5 Bromine has 7 valence electrons 2 from the 4s and 5 from the 4p you can count the electrons in the outermost shell
