What are connections among electron configuarations, the periodic table, and chemical behavior?

  • chemistry -

    The number of electrons, particularly the number in the outside shell, determines the chemical behavior. Elements in the same group generally have the same chemical properties because they have the same number of electrons in their outside shells.
