Question

which characteristic do valence electrons indicate about reactions between atoms?

1 Answer

  • Bond number

    The characteristic of reactions that depends on valence electrons is the bond type.

    In chemistry, a chemical bond could be;

    Ionic

    Covalent

    The type of bond formed depends on the number of valence electrons present. When there are few valence electrons on an atom, it mostly forms ionic bonds.

    When there are more electrons on an atoms, it mostly forms covalent bonds and the electrons between the atoms are shared.
