You are watching: The metalloid that has five valence electrons in the fourth electron shell is
The table shows columns that Franklin uses to organize his notes on the properties of elements. His notes state that some elements are widely used in semiconductors. Where should Franklin place this property in his table?
The lower the group number, the lower the period numbers, so the metalloids are found in a diagonal moving down from left to right.
Based on their locations on the periodic table, which best compares the properties of the metalloids arsenic (As) and antimony (Sb)?
Arsenic has a more nonmetallic behavior than antimony because arsenic"s atoms have fewer electron shells.
How does the number of valence electrons in atoms of metalloids explain why metalloids are semiconductors?
The atoms of a metalloid have 6 valence electrons. The metalloid is used as a semiconductor. Which best describes the electron shell in which the valence electrons are located?
Solar panels convert light energy from sunlight into electrical energy. What material is most likely used in solar panels, and why?
A metalloid is used because it is a semiconductor and can become more conductive when more light shines on it.
The design of a new computer processor requires that electric current be carefully controlled. Why might an engineer want to use a metalloid when designing a new computer processor?
