Orbitals

Postby Brandon Tao 1K » Sun Oct 27, 2019 8:05 pm

If we can add an electron 4s^2 then when we need to remove do we also remove from the same orbital?

Yes, I believe so because you remove electrons from the farthest orbital usually.

Usually, you remove electrons from the farthest orbital so yes, you do.

Yes, you would because you need to remove electrons from the farthest orbital/valence shell.

Yes because what comes before it is 3d10 and because 4s2 is in n=4 you remove from t first.

Yes, it might be confusing because 3d comes before it and d is higher energy, but you can just think of the highest shell (n = ...) as the outer layer to take electrons from.

yes, you remove an electron from the highest energy shell

Yes, because you remove electrons from the farthest orbital because the further away an electron is from the nucleus, the easier it is to remove

Yes, because you remove the electron from the highest orbital, the s orbital would be where you remove the electron first.

Yeah you would remove the electron from the farthest orbital because it is the farthest distance from the positively charged nucleus and therefore is easiest to remove.
