    Take a look at the attachment. From low energy to high: You start in the left upper corner, so with 1s. then you go to the right untill you cannot go further, that's where you go 1 period lower. So s2, then you go to the right again. You'll see there's 2p next. then 3s, 3p. etc So which level has the highest energy?

    actually 4f is between 6s and 5d, as in a normal periodic table. And 5f is between 7s and 6d. But still 4f has the highest energy.
