the 8 no. of electrons are in the last orbit.
The maximum number of electrons an atom can have in its first orbit, or energy level, is 2.
MAXIMUM number of electrons in the 3rd orbit in an atom is 18 electrons
2 electrons maximum. 1s2
There are eight electrons in the second orbit.
The number of electrons in an orbit depends on the element. Hydrogen has 1, Helium has 2. Lithium has 2 in the inner orbit and 1 in the outer one. Only a maximum of two electrons can occupy an orbital. The orbital configuration of oxygen: 1s2 2s2 2px2 2py1 2pz1 The s orbital and the 2px orbitals have 2 electrons but the py and pz orbitals have 1 each.
32 is the maximum number of electrons any orbital ring can contain and only in the 4th or 5th ring
The number of electrons for each orbit are: 2 for first orbit, 8 for second orbit, and 8 for third orbit.
Electrons orbit the atom's nucleus in energy levels. Each primary energy level can be occupied by up to 2n2 electrons n = 1, maximum number of electrons = 2 n = 2, maximum number of electrons = 8 n = 3, maximum number of electrons = 18
Iodine has 7 valence electrons. I- contains 8 valence electron.
Maximum of 2 electrons in the first energy level (or orbit).
Max electrons in an energy level= 2nsquare where n = number of energy level. Therefore, 1st orbit 2e 2nd orbit 8e 3rd orbit 18e 4th orbit 32e
