We have the formula where n is no. of shell which gives us the maximum no. of electrons the shell can accomodate . If an atom has 5 shells then the outermost shell will have 50 electrons according to the formula but this contradicts the rule that outermost shell can only have maximum no. of 8 electrons. Please explain...

The fifth energy shell has 50 electrons (s, p, d, f, g subshells).
p subshell = 6 electrons
d subshell = 10 electrons
f subshell = 14 electrons
g subshell = 18 electrons
Hence total 50 electrons in the fifth energy level, which confrms 2n2 formula.

- How to calculate valency of d block from we electronic configuration
- How we get valency 2 in sulphur?
- How can I draw electronic configuration of calcium in a shell
- why element Helium and Argon are chemically inactive?
- Electron dot structure

- How can i know the valency of a compond to react it with another elemet to form a chemical reaction? For example - Suppose I have to make . Then i have to first react Carbon with Oxygen then react that compond with calcium. So how will i know the valency of compound formed from reaction of carbon with oxygen. We can know the valency of elements from their atomic number and electronic configuration, but how can i know the valency of compound? Please help,waiting for your reply, Thank you.
- sir please explain how we find valence of elements
