Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The principal quantum number for the highest energy electron in carbon would be 2. It is easy to spot this, since carbon exists in row 2 of the period table. The row in which an element resides always shows the highest value of n, or the principal quantum number, that an electron can reside in.
