How many orbital(s) does any s-subshell hold?
anonymous
  • anonymous
0

:O no! The s-subshell has 1 orbital, so it can hold 2 electrons. p-subshell has 3 orbitals, and so it can hold 6 electrons. d-subshell has 5 orbitals and it can hold 10 e-. And it goes on and on...

I'm sorry, I was thinking about quantum number

s has an azimuthal quantum # of 0. The principle quantum number can be anything > 0 though.

in that case, how many orbitals are there in the third shell, n=3
Rogue
  • Rogue
# of orbitals in a shell = n^2 # of electrons in a shell = 2 * n^2

Seems like everyone is starting quantum mechanics ;D
