Valence Electrons in D-block

Postby Ayush Ray 1I » Sat Oct 26, 2019 12:19 pm

Can somebody please explain how we're supposed to figure out how many valence electrons are in d-block elements

The valence electrons for the d-block can vary between 1-2, but it is usually two. This is because the transition metals have multiple oxidative states. There is an endorsed post titled "Determining valence electrons for d-block elements" if you would like more extensive answers.
