Fluorine has nine electrons and it has the configuration of 1s2,2s2 and 2p5(2,7). To obtain the stable octet configuration(Ne) it needs one electron. P-orbital always carries 6 electrons and as you can see the the p-orbital of fluorine has 5 electrons. So it has one unpaired electron.

fluorine configuration:1s^2,2s^2,2p^5.. fluorine has only 1 unpaired electron.. because P=6

1 unpaired

fluorine has one unpaired electrone

28-Mar-2014 18:02:52
1 unpaired electron

'1' bicos '2p' orbital has a max of '6' complt spin so for flourine 2 complt d spin u have to add '1' e.g 1s2 2s2 2p5 1s2 2s2 2p6

Flourine s atomic no 9, havn electronic configuratn of 1s2, 2s2, 3p5. D no of unpair electron in p-shel s 1 bcs S=2, P=6 D=10 and F=14

27-Mar-2014 22:37:58
1 unpaired

27-Mar-2014 22:27:09
no unpaired electron
