				   why carbon cant gain stability by filling half shells like 2s1 2p3? why is it having 2s2, 2p2 electronic configuration??

6 years ago


Answers : (1)


Dear student,

Carbon has six electrons. Two of them will be found in the 1s orbital close to the nucleus. The next two will go into the 2s orbital. The remaining ones will be in two separate 2p orbitals. This is because the p orbitals all have the same energy and the electrons prefer to be on their own if that's the case.
