noble gases hav complete octet but when it is to lose or gain electron which one wil it do first.?

7 years ago


Answers : (1)


Dear student,

The noble gases are relatively nonreactive. This is because they have a complete valence shell. They have little tendency to gain or lose electrons. The noble gases have high ionization energies and negligible electronegativities. The noble gases have low boiling points and are all gases at room temperature.
