# Oxygen Bohr model

The oxygen Bohr model has a nucleus with 8 protons and 8 neutrons. Orbiting this nucleus are two electron shells, holding a total of 8 electrons.

To draw the oxygen Bohr model, outline the 8 protons, 8 neutrons, and 8 electrons. Start by illustrating the nucleus, and then draw the two electron shells. The first shell should contain 2 electrons, and the second holds the remaining 6 electrons.

## Steps

### Write protons, neutrons, and electrons of oxygen atom

Oxygen has 8 protons, 8 neutrons, and 8 electrons.

### Draw nucleus of oxygen atom

The nucleus of an oxygen atom contains 8 protons and 8 neutrons. So draw the nucleus of oxygen atom as follows:

Now in the next step, draw the 1st electron shell and start marking electrons.

### Draw 1st electron shell

Remember that we have a total of 8 electrons.

The 1st electron shell (containing s subshell) can hold up to a maximum of 2 electrons. So draw the 1st electron shell as follows:

In the above image, 1 represents the 1st electron shell that contains 1s subshell. And the green color represents the number of electrons in that subshell. This means that the 1st electron shell has a total of 2 electrons.

Since we have already used 2 electrons in the 1st electron shell, now we have 8 β 2 = 6 electrons left. So in the next step, we have to draw the 2nd electron shell.

### Draw 2nd electron shell

The 2nd electron shell (containing s subshell and p subshell) can hold up to a maximum of 8 electrons. So draw the 2nd electron shell as follows:

In the above image, 2 represents the 2nd electron shell that contains 2s and 2p subshells. And the green and orange color represents the number of electrons in that subshell. This means that the 2nd electron shell has a total of 6 electrons.

Thatβs it! This is the final Bohr model of oxygen atom as we have used all 8 electrons: 2 electrons in the 1st electron shell and 6 electrons in the 2nd electron shell.
