# What Is The Maximum Number Of Electrons In Each Energy Level First, Second, And Third?

I believe the above question is a question regarding Chemistry. Electrons are the negatively charged particles of the atom, which orbit around the nucleus in shells. The electrons are arranged in a definite pattern in these shells and there is a maximum limit to the number of electrons possible in each shell. It can be found using the following formula:
Electron Capacity = 2n2
where n is the number of the energy level. Thus the following is the electron capacity in each level
Level 1: 2 electrons
Level 2: 8 electrons
Level 3: 18 electrons
Level 4: 32 electrons
Level 5: 50 electrons

The ''s'' sublevel can have 2 electrons maximum.
The ''p'' sublevel can have 6 electrons maximum
The ''d'' sublevel can have 10 electrons maximum.
The ''f'' sublevel can have 14 electrons maximum.

The s orbitals have a maximum number of 2 electrons, the p 6, d 10, f 14, and they go like this:
1s2 | 2s2 2p6 | 3s2 3p6 | 4s2 3d10 4p6 | 5s2 4d10 5p6 | 6s2 4f14 5d10 6p6 | 7s2 5f14 6d10 7p6

The answers 2. People have said p=6 because there are 3 p orbitals per shell. Etc
thanked the writer.
Orbital s = 2
orbital p = 6
orbital d = 10
orbital f = 14

2 (2L+1)

where L is azimuthal quantum number
For s orbital L=0,
For p orbital L=1 and so on
