## How Many Valence Electrons Does Magnesium Have

### Does magnesium have too many valence electrons?

Their

You can determine the number of valence electrons in the representative element and find out which family it belongs to.

Alkali metals (group 1) = Li, Na, K, etc. = 1 valence electron

Alkaline Earths Metals (Group 2) = Ho, Magra, CA etc. = 2 valence electrons

Born group (group 13) = B, L, CA, etc. = 3 valence electrons

Carbon group (group 14) = C, C, G, etc. = 4 valence electrons

Nitrogen group (group 15) = N, P, such as = 5 valence electrons

Chalcogen Group (Group 16) = O, S, IF and so on. = 6 valence electrons

Halogen Group (Group 17) = F, Total, BR, etc. = 7 valence electrons

Gases (Group 18) = Ne, air, Kr, etc. = 8 valence electrons (except: it has only 2 valence electrons)

All transfer metals (groups 3-12) have one or two valence electrons, although they can treat DS electrons as valence electrons and effectively obtain 1 to 8 valence electrons.

PS that helps. I now!
