Why is Livermorium in Group 16?
Do you know, how many electrons can be accommodated in the first shell, second shell, third shell, fourth shell, etc…?
Here is the table showing the capacity of orbits to hold electrons.
Number of electrons in shells.
|Orbit / Shell (n)||Maximum no. of electrons this orbit can hold (2 × n2)|
|K shell, n = 1||2 × 1² = 2|
|L shell, n = 2||2 × 2² = 8|
|M shell, n = 3||2 × 3² = 18|
|N shell, n = 4||2 × 4² = 32|
- 1st shell can hold 2 electrons.
- 2nd shell can hold 8 electrons.
- 3rd shell can hold 18 electrons.
- 4th shell can hold 32 electrons, and so on…
Now the atomic number of Livermorium (Lv) is 116.
Hence the livermorium element has electrons arrangement 2, 8, 18, 32, 32, 18, 6.
This electron arrangement indicates that the outermost orbit of livermorium element (Lv) has 6 electrons.
Hence, it lies in group 16.
Why is Livermorium in Period 7?
Let me ask you a question.
How many shells does a livermorium atom have?
It’s 7. Right?
You have already seen the bohr model of livermorium atom in the above table.
From the Bohr model, it can be found that the number of orbits or shells in livermorium is 7. Hence, as livermorium has 7 orbits, it lies in period 7 of the Periodic table.
