    Each row is called a period. As the rows go down, the energy levels increase. Example: H first row, n=1 where n is the energy lvl. So on down the line

    Or rather, the first row or period says any element in that period has 1 energy level or electron orbital. The second period says any element in that period has 2 energy level or 2 electron orbitals. And so on.
