Atoms are isoelectronic when they have the same number of electrons. For example, N2-, O-, and F are isoelectronic.

Isoelectronic simply refers to two atoms that have the same amount of electrons. For instance, Neon has 10 electrons as does Fluorine-, which starts with 9 electrons but gains another to have 10 total, so these two atoms are isoelectronic.

Isoelectronic just refers to atoms/ions with the same number of electrons. Ex) Na+, F-, Ne — they all have the same # of electrons!

Isoelectronic simply means that the atoms being compared have the same number of electrons. This is often demonstrated by ions, like S- being isoelectronic with Cl.

Isoelectronic means atoms or ions that have the same number of electrons. An example of this would be Na+, Mg2+

It's when elements or ions have the same electron configurations. For example Na+, Ne and O2- are all isoelectronic.

Isoelectronic means that different ion combinations of the elements have the same number of electrons and therefore the same configuration.

Isoelectronic is when different ions have the same number of electrons. For example, Na+ is isoelectronic with neon.

Isoelectronic are two ions that have the same electronic structure and the same number of valence electrons. An example would be F- and Na+.

Atoms and ions with equal number of electrons are isoelectronic. Examples include Na+, F-, and Mg2+. Be cautious, however, as these three ions have the same electron configuration (same number of electrons) but their radii differ because they have different nuclear charges. This means that the Mg2+ ion has the largest nuclear charge since it has the most protons, so it has the strongest attraction for electrons and thus the smallest radius of the three. In contrast, F- has the lowest nuclear charge, so it has the largest radius even though all three have the same number of electrons.

isoelectronic refers to the situation in which there the number of electrons are equal
