The Formation of Bonds with Carbon Erin Sanofi SUBTITOR Carbon has a total
of 6 electrons , with 2 in the first electron shell and 4 in the second shell . Having
4 valence feedia electrons in a shell that holds 8 , AIS carbon would have to ...
The electron configuration of carbon gives it covalent compatibility with many
different elements . Figure 4.4 shows electron - shell diagrams of the four major
atomic components of organic molecules . As you may recall from Chapter 2 ,
It is generally equal to the number of electrons required to complete the atom's
outermost ( valence ) electron shell ( see Figure 2.8 ) . A couple of additional
examples will show how the rules of covalent bonding apply to carbon atoms with
