VALENCY OF NON-METALS


       The number of electrons accepted by a non metal is called valency of the non metal. For example, one atom of chlorine accepts 1 electron to form a negative chloride ion (Cl), so chlorine is a non-metal. Here because an atom of chlorine gains 1 electron so the valency of chlorine is 1.


Cl      +      e-           Cl



In the same way, an atom of oxygen gains 2 electrons so its valency is 2.



O      +      2e-           O2-
