User: Sodium has one electron in its outer energy level. According to the octet rule, _____. it wants to take on another electron it wants to give up an electron its outer energy level is full



Weegy: Sodium has 11 protons and 11 electrons, because they are always equal. This means that in its innermost electron shell is full, having 2 electrons, and so is the next shell, with 8. 8+2=10, so there is one lonely electron in the outer valence shell. [ This means Sodium has a valence of 7, or it desires 7 electrons to complete its valence shell, because 8 (number the third shell can hold) - 1 (number actually in it) = 1. An electron with a completed valence shell is more stable than one without. This is why carbon is so versatile. Remember: the valence of an atom equals the number of protons the valence electron shell can hold minus the number actually in it. Also, a little known fact about the Periodic Table... Each row represents how many electron shells the element has. For instance, all elements in the third row have three shells. ]
