🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Bucks' class at UC.
How many unpaired electrons are present in a ground-state atom from Group 6A(16)?
Group 6 A elements → 6 Valence electrons
Following Hund's rule where we have to half-fill the orbitals first before electrons start to pair
Group 6 A has 4 orbitals (1 in s and 3 in p)
Example as O:
