MAXIMUM number of electrons in the 3rd orbit in an atom is 18 electrons

There are eight electrons in the second 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

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

You think probable to Pauli exclusion principle.
