Energy of Noble Gases

Postby Joseph Saba » Tue Oct 29, 2019 5:18 pm

Are the noble gases at a lower energy state than any other element in their row? Does fulfilling hunds rule (where the electrons are placed in a subshell completely) lower the energy state of the element?

Noble gases are the least reactive and most stable out of all the elements in their period, but I'm uncertain as to whether this puts them at a lower energy level since their valence electrons are still filling the p subshells, which are higher in energy than the s subshells. Fulfilling hunds rule creates a full octet and makes an element have a noble gas configuration, so that element should be lower in reactivity and higher in ionization energy.

I don't really know what you mean by lowest energy level, but the noble gases are the least reactive and have the lowest electronegativity.
