# How many electrons are in 4f?

The s sublevel has just one orbital, so can contain

**2 electrons**max. The p sublevel has 3 orbitals, so can contain**6 electrons**max. The d sublevel has 5 orbitals, so can contain**10 electrons**max. And the 4 sublevel has 7 orbitals, so can contain**14 electrons**max.A.

### How many orbitals are in the 4f subshell?

The subshell has

**one orbital**for a total of 2 electrons. The subshell has**three orbitals**for a total of 6 electrons. The subshell has**five orbitals**for a total of 10 electrons. The subshell has**seven orbitals**for a total of 14 electrons.#### What is the maximum number of electrons that can be found in the N 3 shell of an atom?

Questions and AnswersEnergy Level (Principal Quantum Number) Shell Letter Electron Capacity 1 K 2 2 L 8 3 M 18 4 N 32 #### Is a 5f orbital possible?

The order of the electron**orbital**energy levels, starting from least to greatest, is as follows: 1s, 2s, 2p, 3s, 3p, 4s, 3d, 4p, 5s, 4d, 5p, 6s, 4f, 5d, 6p, 7s,**5f**, 6d, 7p. So, if there are open**orbitals**in the same energy level, the electrons will fill each**orbital**singly before filling the**orbital**with two electrons.#### What is the Hund's rule in chemistry?

**Hund's Rule**.**Hund's rule**: every orbital in a subshell is singly occupied with one electron before any one orbital is doubly occupied, and all electrons in singly occupied orbitals have the same spin.

### How many electrons are in the 5d Subshell?

The fourth shell has 4 subshells: the subshell, which has 1 orbital with

**2 electrons**, the subshell, which has 3 orbitals with**6 electrons**, the subshell, which has 5 orbitals with**10 electrons**, and the subshell, which has 7 orbitals with**14 electrons**, for a total of 16 orbitals and**32 electrons**.#### What is the third quantum number?

**Magnetic quantum number**. The**magnetic quantum number**distinguishes the orbitals available within a subshell, and is used to calculate the azimuthal component of the orientation of orbital in space. Electrons in a particular subshell (such as s, p, d, or f) are defined by values of ℓ (0, 1, 2, or**3**).#### What is the maximum number of electrons that can be found in the N 3 shell of an atom?

Questions and AnswersEnergy Level (Principal Quantum Number) Shell Letter Electron Capacity 1 K 2 2 L 8 3 M 18 4 N 32 #### What is the maximum number of f orbitals that are possible?

The five d orbitals can hold up to 10 electrons. Thus, the third level holds a maximum of**18**electrons: 2 in the s orbital, 6 in the three p orbitals, and 10 in the five d orbitals. The fourth and higher levels also have an f sublevel, containing seven f orbitals, which can hold a maximum of 14 electrons.

C.

### How many electrons can be in each shell?

Each shell can contain only a fixed number of electrons: The first shell can hold up to

**two electrons**, the second shell can hold up to eight (2 +**6**) electrons, the third shell can hold up to**18**(2 + 6 + 10) and so on. The general formula is that the nth shell can in principle hold up to 2(n^{2}) electrons.#### What atom has the electron configuration 2 8 5?

Electron structure of the first 20 elementsElement Atomic number Elec- trons in 1st shell Boron 5 2 Carbon 6 2 Nitrogen 7 2 Oxygen 8 2 #### What does Hund's rule mean?

**Hund's Rule**.**Hund's rule**: every orbital in a subshell is singly occupied with one electron before any one orbital is doubly occupied, and all electrons in singly occupied orbitals have the same spin.#### How do you determine the number of protons in an atom?

You can simply subtract the atomic**number**from the mass**number**in order to**find the number**of neutrons. If the**atom**is neutral, the**number of electrons**will be equal to the**number**of protons. 1. Your mass**number**is the total**number**of neutrons and protons within the**atom**.
