Atomic Theory An atom consists of a nucleus of protons and neutrons surrounded by a group of orbiting electrons . Electrons are negative, protons are positive. In its normal state, each atom has an equal number of electrons and protons. Electrons orbit the nucleus in discrete orbits called shells . These shells are designated by letters K, L, M, N, etc. Only certain numbers of electrons can exist within any given shell. 5

Atomic Theory The outermost shell of an atom is called the valence shell . The electrons in this shell are called valence electrons . No element can have more than eight valence electrons. The number of valence electrons affects its electrical properties 6
