According to octet rule, atoms tends to acheive _____ electrons in the outermost shell.
In order to attain octet configuration, the atoms share, lose or gain electrons. In the process, its atomic mass:
Changes according to number of electrons being gained
Remains the same in case of sharing, but it changes in case of losing or gaining electrons
Does not change
