What is the octet rule of nitrogen?
The octet rule is the understanding that most atoms seek to gain stability in their outer most energy level by filling the s and p orbitals of the highest energy level with eight electrons.
Nitrogen has an electron configuration of
However, now nitrogen has 10 electrons and only 7 protons making it a -3 charge anion
I hope this was helpful.
