Which statement about electrons and atomic orbitals is NOT true? (1 point) An electron has the same amount of energy in all orbitals. An orbital can contain a maximum of two electrons. An electron cloud represents all the orbitals in an atom. An atom’s lowest energy level has only one orbital.

    Electrons have different amounts of energy depending on which orbital they are in.

    Oh no! I'm not sure how I misread this, but the answer should have been: "An electron has the same amount of energy in all orbitals." The energy of an electron depends on which orbital it is in - higher up orbitals equal more energy.
