Stable and Unstable Atoms



The octet rule states that atoms gain or lose electrons to attain an outer shell electron configuration nearest to that of a noble gas. Atoms which attain noble gas configuration are non reactive in nature and are called stable atoms. Atoms which do not attain noble gas configuration are reactive in nature and are called unstable atoms.
