Why do helium, neon and argon have a zero valency?



Helium has two electrons in its energy shell, while argon and neon have 8 electrons in their valence shells. As these have maximum number of electrons in their valence shells, they do not have any tendency to combine with other elements. Hence, they have a valency equal to zero.

Atomic structure

Rutherford’s atomic model was a reasonably good model of structure of atom based on at the famous particle scattering experiment. However, it was subsequently modified by Neils Bohr and later on, by others. The resulting improvements in the understanding of atomic structure have greatly contributed to further scientific advancement. There are many other similar examples in scientific field when original contributors happily accept modifications in their ideas. Answer the following questions based on the above information: (๐’Š) Name the scientific values associated with above anecdotes.
