Hi, my name is Patricia. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw the atomic model for chlorine. Now, I'm going to put my scientist hat on and first you can draw a circle, this is the center of your model and in it you can either write out proton 17, neutrons 18 or if you want to get really nifty you can do your center like this and draw out the circles for the protons and neutrons. Of course, do them in different colors but remember the number of each or else it won't be the correct model. Alright, so moving right along, we have three energy levels, so draw three circles around your center circle and in here, we have our electrons. In the first energy level we have two, and so we're going to draw two circles and then in the next energy level we have eight. So in groupings of two, we can do one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, put little negative signs. Alright and in the last energy level, you're going to have seven. So we are going to do something like this one, two, again small circles, three, four, five, six, oh, and then only one, this poor guy is all by himself but that makes it chlorine. Alright, so there is your atomic model for chlorine. Enjoy.
