What is an electron a cloud or a shell?
It is neither. It is a negatively charged particle that is in a cloud around the nucleus.

Because electrons were believed to be moving very fast that it almost can't be seen, the scientists found some places where the electrons can be seen and they called it the "e…lectron cloud".
The region of negative charge surrounding an atomic nucleus that isassociated with an atomic orbital.
electron shells are like the orbits of electrons around the protons and neutrons . the atoms can have 1-3 shells .
it is the ring around the nucleus of an atom which contains electrons. in the first shell there are 2. in the second there are 8. third ''. in the outer shell there ar…e 2
A shell surrounding the nucleus of an atom containing electrons.
In the electron cloud model if you begin at the electron shell closest to the nucleus of an atom and move out what is the number of electrons that each energy level or electron shell needs to fil?
2, 8, 18, 32 more
The correct number of electron clouds or shells sodium has is 3.
Electronic shells are the specific shells in which electrons orbit around the nucleus of an atom, each electron shell has a specific energy level.
This is a chemical element. You can find the how many electron in a single atom by using a periodic table.
How does the periodic table help us determine how many electrons fit into each shell of the electron cloud?
This is hard to explain, sorry if it is vague for you, but I will try to make it clear. The way you can find the number of energy shells is by looking at the ROWS of the Peri…odic Table of Elements. Go to this website: http://universe-review.ca/I12-16-periodictable.jpg Do you see the numbers on the far left side right underneath "Period Number"? Those are the numbers of energy shells!
electronic cloud is the presence of free electrons around the nucleus
The electron shell is an energy level represented as the distance of an electron from the nucleus of the atom
They are the probability of finding the electrons.

Electrons are found in the shells and clouds.
The shell is the principle energy level, and is defined as 1, 2, 3,etc. (or K, L, M, etc). An orbital is the spacial orientation ofthe orbit, such as px, py, pz, where the orb…it is a p orbit, andthe orbital is the x, y, or z orientation of that orbit. This is amathematical expression of where the electron is most likely to befound. The electron cloud is more of a visual representation of theelectrons surrounding the nucleus, and is based on the electronorbitals.
