why carbon has vaency 4 and chrine 1
Asked by trishlaparihar20th | 27th Mar, 2015, 07:46: PM
Valency is the combining capacity of an atom.
The atomic number of carbon is 6. Its electronic configuration is (2, 4). It has 4 electrons in its outermost shell (valence shell). Carbon will either gain or lose these 4 electrons to complete its octet. Thus, the valency of carbon is 4.
Similarly, atomic number of chlorine is 17. Its electronic configuration is (2, 8, 7). Thus, chlorine will gain 1 electron to complete its octet. Therefore, the valency of chlorine is 1.

- want to learn periodic table chapter
- what is periodic table explain
- Select the correct answer (1) across a period,the ionisation potential ( increase, decrease ,remains same) (2)down a group,electron affinity (increase, decrease,remain same)
- periodicity is observed due to similar .....
- Define periodicity
- How to find the valency of an element?
- name the element in correct order of their increasing atom atomic numbers present in the first second and third short period of the periodic table state each element electronic configuration
- groups and periods funda in periodic table
- How can I self study any chapter with clear conceptual understanding the particular chapter that is not taught in school and without the help of online videos??
- why is the periodic table named as it is?
