Explain the difference between valence electrons and core electrons.
Step 1 of 3
Here, we are going to explain the difference between valence electrons and core electrons.
The electrons occupying the outermost(last occupied) or highest energy shell of an atom are called valence electrons. These electrons are involved in bond formation.
Beside the valence electrons, all other electrons are called core electrons. These electrons are not involved in bonding.
