There is only one S orbital in the first energy level

it goes 1s 3p 5d and 7f, meaning there is only 1 s orbital, 2 p orbitals, 5 d orbitals and 7 f orbitals with each orbital having an opposite spin electron pair

one because the first only has an s sublevel.

One only - 1s.

There is only one. That is 1s orbital

1st energy has 1 sublevel -- 1 orbital -- 2 electrons 2nd energy level has 2 sublevels -- 4 orbitals -- 8 e- 3rd energy level has 3 sublevels -- 9 orbitals -- 18 e- 4th energy level has 4 sublevels -- 16 orbitals -- 32 e- Notice the pattern? number of orbitals = energy level squared Number of electrons = 2x number of orbitals

There are three 2p orbitals and each can hold a maximum of two electrons with opposite spins, for a total of 6 electrons. This is true of the p sublevel in any energy level, except for the first energy level, which does not have a p sublevel.

16 orbitals in the 4th energy level. One s orbital, three p orbitals, five d orbitals, seven f orbitals Elements where the 4th principal energy level are filled are:- period 4 4s and 4p (starting with potassium) period 5 4d starting with Yttrium Lanthanides 4f starting with cerium

The maximum number of f orbitals in any single energy level in an atom is 7.

8 electrons. The second energy level (n=2) has 4 orbitals. One s orbital and three p orbitals. Each orbital can hold 2 electrons of opposite spin.
