How many valence electrons are present in sulphur atom?

Valence is the number of electrons an atom must lose or gain to attain the nearest noble gas or inert gas electronic configuration. valence electrons are the s and p electrons in the outermost shell.


We know that the

  • Atomic number – 16.
  • The electronic configuration – 2, 8, 6.
  • Thus, the number of valence electrons in sulphur are 6.
