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?

  • Chemistry -

    I mean 12 atoms.

  • Chemistry -

    Yes 13
    But the 12 electrons are in different shells.

    I mean 12 not 13 of course

  • Chemistry -

    13?

  • Chemistry -

    Will the REAL Damon please stand up.

  • Chemistry -

    Thanks for the clarification

  • Chemistry -

    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

  • Chemistry -

    LOL - That confused me too :)

  • Chemistry -

    Thank you very much sir
