How many electrons do Group 1 elements have in their outer shell? They each have one electron in their outer shell.
What is another name for the Group 0 elements? The noble gases.
Why are Group 0 elements unreactive? They have a stable arrangement of electrons. / They have a full outer shell.
What is the charge of an Atom? Atoms have no charge overall. They are neutral.

What is another name for an electron shell? An energy level.
How many electrons can go in the first electron shell? 2 electrons
How many electrons can go in the second electron shell? 8 electrons
How many electrons can go in the third electron shell? 8 electrons
Which shell fills with electrons first? The one closest to the nucleus. / The one with lowest energy level.
What is a molecule? A molecule is two or more atoms held together by covalent bonds.
What is an ion? An ion is a charged particle.
Do metal atoms form positive ions or negative ions? Positive ions.
Do non-metal atoms form positive ions or negative ions? Negative ions.
If a compound is formed from a metal and a non-metal, what type of bonding will be present in the compound? Ionic bonding.
What type of bonding holds the atoms in a molecule together? Covalent bonding.
