# atomic model of boron

Question:I am doing an assignment that asks for a bohr model of boron.. however, it is an ION of boron, not a regular atom, so I must deal with valence electrons etc. I know that boron has three valence electrons but I want to know how many should be in the other energy levels, since the ion will have 8 electrons not 5, like a usual atom of boron. Many thanks to whoever answers!!

Answers:The regular boron atom has 2 electrons in the first shell and 3 in the next (outer/valence shell). Boron is a nonmetal, so it will always add electrons to become an ion. It will add 5 electrons in the valence shell, so the boron ion has 2 in the inner shell and 8 in the outer shell.

Question:In science class we have to build three 3D atomic structure models: Boron, Magnesium, and Argon. All i need now is to know their uses, and how their atomic structure helps. GRACIAS

Answers:Argon is used for welding as a shield gas, this is because it is inert. it prevents immediate corrosion of the weld.

Question:Okay so my mother is clueless with my explanation on how to make a boron atom model in to a cake she gives me a dumb founded look. I was tying also to explain to her that the "nucleus" in the cake needs to be raised and once again i get a dumb founded look. So can you give me a good explanation on how it should look Protons:5 Neutrons:6 Electrons:5 Electron clouds:2

Answers:So you need to make an edible cake for a class about an atomic model? Well the easiest thing i can think of is either make a round cake and draw with icing the protons (represented as +), the neutrons (represented as 0), the electrons ( represented as -), and the electron cloud (represented as twizler stretched around the cake twice to make the 2 clouds. Use colorful icing. I hope this is what youre talking about. lol if not, i just designed a pretty odd looking cake.

Question:i'm making a 3D model of an atom (boron) for my science project. it needs to hang from the ceiling so it needs to be a mobile. i don't want to use wire to make the rings because they are too flimsy. do you have any ideas of what materials i could use? i want to use Styrofoam balls for the electrons...do you think that would work?

Answers:You could use steel spring wire, it is much stronger than copper wire or regular steel wire. You could also use ping-pong balls over Styrofoam because they are hollow and are much lighter than even Styrofoam.
