# how many electrons does f orbital hold

14 electrons

This means that the s orbital can contain up to two electrons, the p orbital can contain up to six electrons, the d orbital can contain up to 10 electrons, and the f orbital can contain up to 14 electrons.

The f orbital has 7 sub level with the possibility of two electrons in each suborbital. Therefore, the f orbital can hold 14 electrons.

• ## How many electrons can the 7 f orbitals hold?

f: 7 orbitals, 14 electrons.

## How many electrons can the F sublevel hold?

Each f sublevel can have a total of 14 electrons.

## What is the 2 8 8 18 rule in chemistry?

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.

## Which sublevel has the highest energy?

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.

## How many electrons are there in F?

f: 7 orbitals, 14 electrons.

## What is the 2 8 8 electron rule?

We should start with the atoms that have atomic numbers between 1 and 18. There is a 2-8-8 rule for these elements. The first shell is filled with 2 electrons, the second is filled with 8 electrons, and the third is filled with 8. You can see that sodium (Na) and magnesium (Mg) have a couple of extra electrons.

## Why is the electron configuration 2 8 8 18?

It is an arrangement of electrons in various shells, sub-shells and orbitals in an atom. It is written as 2, 8, 8, 18, 18, 32. It is written as nlx ( where n indicates the principal quantum number), l indicates the azimuthal quantum number or sub-shell, and x is the number of electrons.

## What is 2 8 18 32 pattern in chemistry?

A recently discovered isotope of the noble element oganesson (symbol ‘Og’) has electronic configuration 2, 8, 18, 32, 32, 18, 8 and mass number 294.

## Why is 3rd shell 8 or 18?

The third period contains only eight elements even though the electron capacity of the third shell is 18 because when the other shells get filled and the resultant number of electrons becomes eighteen, it gets added up and settles in the third electron shell and three shells are acquired by the fourth period.
