Question

The total number of electrons in one molecule of carbon dioxide is

Solution

Correct option is

22

 

In a neutral atom, atomic number represents the number of protons inside the nucleus and equal number of electrons around it. Therefore, the number of total electrons in molecule of CO2

                          = electrons present in one carbon atom

                           +2 × electron present in one oxygen atom.  

                           = 6 + 2 × 8 = 22.
