Its been bothering me though that I can't figure out what atom it would represent.
Two electron orbits. 2 electrons on one, and 6 on the other.
Can any of you help me figure out what atom this most likely represents?
>six on the other
Enjoy your extra credit in your high school chem class
If they represent the only orbitals then its not a real atom because the second s orbital can only hold two electrons.
If they represent the last two s and p orbitals (2s^2, 2p^6) it could be Ne, and that element would make a lot of sense.
No. It has 9 electrons. It is Fluorine. You are overcomplicating it with 2s shit. Look at this >>7651661 picture from wikipedia, clearly illustrating Fluorine with two electrons in one orbit and 7 in the other. This is a common technique. Yes, it is not 100% accurate. But it a model that people recognize, and that's what the artist reproduced.
If the artist was going for a truly realistic depiction of an atom, he would have solved schrodinger's equations and drawn us a pretty picture of its wavefunction. But he didnt. Boo hoo.
It is a Fluorine atom. However, it is not an accurate representation of an atom as: A) electrons exist more in a state of superposition rather than neat orbits, and B) the nucleus of an atom is not usually an olive.
Fluorineposters confirmed retards and fail basic lateral thinking
There's obviously an electron behind the olive that isn't shown
It's a neon sign
>hmm, must be fluorine because there's water in drinks
>and there's fluorine in the water
this is what you sound like
