Sorry for asking but I want to know all about how the electrons in the atom work like what's their mass,energy levels ,etc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hey there I'll briefly describe without goin in to deep okai? Electrons in S orbitals: These consist of only one orbital. And there 3D shape is like a sphere.When the size of the S orbital increases the increase of energy levels the Energy in one S orbital also increases. The p sub energy level have 3 orbitals which are same in size and same in their dumbbell shape . But they are in 3 different planes. All the orbitals in the same energy level has the same amount of energy. therefore the p orbitals in lesser energy levels have less energy and p orbitals in higher energy levels have higher energy. The d sub energy level consists of 5 orbitals known as d{xy}, d{yz}, d{xz}, d{z^2}, d {x^2Y^2}. Here the first three orbitals I have mentioned have the similar shape whereas other 2 differ in shape. Here also the same scenario when u go to higher energy levels the energy is high. F sub energy level comprises of 7 orbitals. So they a hold complex shape. and I"m not really sure about that. If u need to know about the location of electrons in energy levels you have to go through the quantum numbers again.
