Similarly one may ask, how many valence electrons are in the 4th Shell?
Beryllim has 4 electrons --- 2 in thefirstshell, and 2 in the second shell (so twovalenceelectrons). Boron has 5 electrons --- 2 in thefirstshell, and 3 in the second shell (so threevalenceelectrons). Carbon has 6 electrons --- 2 inthe firstshell, and 4 in the second shell (sofourvalence electrons).
Additionally, what is the maximum number of electrons in the 4th Shell? Thus, the fourth level can hold up to32electrons: 2 in the s orbital, 6 in the three p orbitals,10in the five d orbitals, and 14 in the seven f orbitals.Thesublevels of the first four principal energy levels andthemaximum number of electrons that the sublevels cancontainare summarized in Table 5.1.
Also asked, how many electrons can the valence shell hold?
Why is 3rd shell 8 or 18?
This is because it is the maximum capacity of the3rdshell and it doesn't tell about the order in whichtheelectrons are filled. The2,8,18,…configuration is taught till class10th in schools. The answer toyour question lies in knowing thereal configuration ofelements.
