Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1awesome. nope, the last energy level would be 3 the number preceeding the letter (orbital) is the energy level, the higher the number, the higher the energy an electron is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh wait, no the configuration you wrote is incomplete. \(\sf \huge 1s^2 2s^22p^63s^23p^2\) so yeah, 4 electrons
