The electron closest to the nucleus has the lowest energy level. Since electrons are attracted to the nucleus, it takes energy to make them orbit at a greater distance (and even more energy to remove them from orbit entirely).

The first orbital is noted 1s.

NO,the lowest energy levels are far to the nucleus.

In energy shells around and outside the nucleus of an atom!!!!

### What the is energy levels in an atom?

1. Atoms do not have energy levels unlike particles like electrons etc.2. The lowest energy for atoms will be 0 at absolute zero temp of 0 deg Kelvin.3. For electrons in all atoms lowest energy is that of 2 electrons nearest to the nucleus.

All atoms have electrons, but not in the nucleus.

### What electron has the greatest binding energy?

The atoms in the valance shell. The atoms furthest from the nucleus. ( ' highest ' )

### In what atoms is the 2s orbital closest to the nucleus?

The electrons in the 2p subshell have more energy than those in the 2s subshell, that is energy per electron.See Wikipedia 'Electron Shells' for more on this subject.

### What does a atom's outermost electron shell does?

The outer energy level is in the electron cloud surrounding the nucleus. Each ring that surrounds the nucleus is an energy level and contains a different number of electrons.

The number of electrons of both atoms and its valence number.

### What is the first shell closest to the nucleus?

The K shell is first shell closest to the nucleus.

### Each electron shell in an atom contains?

they contain electrons, which are negatively charged and revolve at high speed around the nucleus of an atom. the first shell (the one nearest to the nucleus) can hold a maximum of 2 electrons. the second shell can hold a maximun of 8 electrons. If there any remaining electrons they will go on the third shell. the third shell can hold a maximum of 18 electrons. the shells closest to the nucleus (inner shells) must contain their maximum number of electrons before attempting to fill the energy levels to a higher energy.

### How do you describe atoms?

Atoms have a Nucleus, Protons, Nuetrons, Electrons!
