"What is the number of unpaired electrons in an isolated Fluorine atom in the ground state?"

This would be 1?

atomic number 9, so:
2 in first shell
7 in 2nd shell

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
