Valence Electrons and Isotopes

Valence Electrons and Isotopes: What is Valence Electrons? The valency, i.e., the combining capacity, of an atom of an element depends on the number of electrons present in its outermost orbit or shell (highest energy level). These electrons are, therefore, often referred to as valence electrons (or valency electrons). The chemical properties of an element depend …
