Hi! Isoelectronic means that the atoms have the same amount of electrons. For example, O2-, F1- and Ne are isoelectric as they all have 10 electrons. From my understanding, isoelectronic atoms share similar properties, so knowing that they are isoelectronic can help you in understanding the properties of an unknown atom.

What does isoelectronic mean?
Hi! Isoelectronic means that the two entities (ie. atoms, ions, molecules, etc.) have the same number of electrons. This does not mean they have the same characteristics or the same charge. Hope this helps!
Isoelectronic is when atoms and ions have the same number of electrons. However, this does not imply they have the same chemical or physical properties because they have different nuclear charges. I hope this helps!!
