What determines the valence capabilities of atoms?

The valence capabilities of atoms are determined by the number of unpaired electrons in the ground and in the excited state. However, the valence capabilities of atoms can be determined by both the number of empty orbitals and the number of lone electron pairs.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
