You are watching: How many inner outer and valence electrons

For b: The number of inner electrons, outer electrons and valence electrons are 54, 1 and 1 respectively.

For c: The number of inner electrons, outer electrons and valence electrons are 23, 1 and 1 respectively.

For d: The number of inner electrons, outer electrons and valence electrons are 36, 2 and 2 respectively.

For e: The number of inner electrons, outer electrons and valence electrons are 2, 7 and 7 respectively.

Explanation:

Outer shell electrons are the electrons which are not tightly held by the electrons. They are called as valence electrons. The electrons present in the highest principle quantum number are known as valence electrons.

Inner shell electrons are the electrons which are tightly held by the electrons. They are called as core electrons.

Inner electrons = Total number of electrons - Valence electrons

Total number of electrons in an atom is equal to the atomic number of the element.
