The maximum number of electrons in any s orbital is 2, irrespective of the principal quantum number preceding the "s".

2. The S sub-shell has one orbital and an orbital can hold a max of 2 electrons.

An energy sublevel refers to an electron orbital, which are designated as s, p, d or f. The maximum number of electrons in a p-type energy sublevel is 6.

The maximum number of electrons that can occupy and s subshell, or sublevel, is 2. So the maximum number of electrons that can occupy the 6s subshell is 2.

S sublevel has 2 maximum

An s orbital can have a maximum of two electrons.

The maximum number of electrons in any s orbital is 2, irrespective of the principal quantum number preceding the "s".

There are 2 in the s orbital.

The maximum number of electrons would be 2 No matter what the orbital is, the maximum number will always be 2

A maximum of two electrons can be accommodated in each s orbital.

Yes it does. Helium has 2 electrons in the s orbital. A s orbital can hold a maximum of two electrons.

Each orbital can accommodate two electrons. There is one s orbital per principal quantum number, so for any Ns orbital level there are a maximum of two electrons.

Any s orbital can only hold 2 electrons maximum.

In every sublevel, the s orbital can always hold a maximum number of 2 electrons. That is, from 1s to 7s, each of them can only have 2 maximum electrons because each of them has only 1 single s orbital. Every orbital is only capable of holding maximum of 2 electrons

The S orbital contains a maximum of two electrons

Each orbital contains maximum or 2 electrons. you could be either asking for this OR s orbital contains maximum of 2 electrons (has 1 orbitals) p orbital contains maximum of 6 electrons (has 3 orbitals) d orbital contains maximum of 10 electrons (has 5 orbitals)
