Draw a Bohr diagram of the protons and electrons in each of the following.
a) an atom of magnesium
Do I draw this with 19 atoms surrounding the shell of Magnesium around?
I mean 12 atoms.
But the 12 electrons are in different shells.
I mean 12 not 13 of course
Will the REAL Damon please stand up.
Thanks for the clarification
2 s electrons in the first shell. That fills it with 2
2 s and 6 p electrons in the second shell. That fills it with 8
The last 2 s electrons are in the third shell
LOL - That confused me too :)
Thank you very much sir
