what happens to the outermost shell when the atom loses all the electrons of outermost shell? will it disappear?

Expert Answer:

No, outermost shell won’t disappear but the atom will become an ion.

For example if Hydrogen donates its 1 electron to chlorine then the outermost shell remains as it is but Hydrogen atom will become Hydrogen ion (H+).
