How many electrons can occupy a single molecular orbital?
and Alumimum is a group 3A metal, Which ion does A1 typically form? I'm thinking Al3+
Your first question depends on the molecule involved and how it is bonded. Hybrid molecular orbits can be formed.
Now in an atom, there are electron orbitals of mostly fixed shape and predictable energy levels and vacancies.
In a particular energy level there can be up to 2n^2 electrons. In a particular orbital, and there are in any energy level, up to 2n-1 orbitals, or a total of 2(2n-1) total electrons in that energy level.
I recommend you see your text on this, I suspect there is a chart showing the filling of the electrons into energy levels and orbitals.
Yes, aluminum forms the +3 ion.

Helium is in group 18 of the periodic table. How is helium different from the other elements in this group? A. Helium atoms have 2 valence electrons, while atoms of the other elements in the group all have 8 valence electrons. B. Helium atoms have 2
Between which type of elements do ionic bonds occur, and how do electrons act within the bond? A: metals and metals, electrons freely moving B: metals and nonmetals, electrons transferred C: nonmetals and nonmetals, electrons shared D: nonmetals and
In which orbital does an electron in a phosphorus atom experience the greatest effective nuclear charge? a. 1s b. 2s c. 2p d. 3s e. 3p I originally thought 3p, since those are the outer electrons, but that was marked wrong. Why is it not 3p? Is the right
The numbers on the top of the coumns on the periodic table represent A The number of valence electrons that each of those elements in that column have. B The number of core electrons that each of those elements in that column have. C The number of orbital

I need help on identifying four elements. 1. a member of the same family as oxygen whose most stable ion contains 54 electrons. (Sulfur?) 2. member of alkali metal family whose most stable ion contains 36 electrons. (Cesium??) 3. noble gas with 18 protons
When two atoms approach each other and react with each other, it is their outer shells that come into contact first, and it is therefore the electrons in their outer shells that are normally involved in any chemical reaction.electrons are known as Orbiting
It takes 254 kJ/mol to eject electrons from a certain metal surface. What is the longest wavelength of light (nm) that can be used to eject electrons from the surface of this metal via the photoelectric effect? I'd appreciate it if someone could explain
According to the octet rule a calcium atom has a tendecy to.? Look at Ca on the periodic table. It is in group 2 (or IIA depending upon the system your teacher is using). That tells you that it has two electrons in its outer shell and that means it will
