An atomic orbital is a mathematical function that describes the wave-like ... Any
orbital can be occupied by a maximum of two electrons, each with its own spin ...

Feb 20, 2014 ... First we look at the n=1 shell (the first shell). ... s-orbitals can hold 2 electrons, the
p-orbitals can hold 6 electrons. ... An easy way to visualise this is like this: ... Each
shell (or energy level) has some number of subshells, which ... For example, the
subshell of any energy level consists of spherical orbitals...
It gives the impression that the electrons are circling the nucleus in orbits like ...
The circles show energy levels - representing increasing distances from the
nucleus. ... In the hydrogen case, the electron can be found anywhere within a
spherical ... If you look carefully, you will notice that there is another region of
And they'll say, OK, it's going to be within this sphere; and it actually gets denser
.... And what does that first orbital subshell, that; s-shell, look like? .... Basically
there are a series of energy levels (or electron shells) around the nucleus of an
atom. ... So for example - the d sub-shell can hold a maximum of 10 elect...
The number denotes the energy level of the electron in the orbital. ... Now, let's
look at a cross-section of these orbitals. ... orbital has very little electron density
near the nucleus, but it builds up to a maximum as ... A 2s orbital is similar to a 1s
orbital, but it has sphere of electron density ... How many electrons can s,...
Some middle school texts show the electrons in pairs on an energy level. ...
There can be a maximum of two electrons in any orbital so showing elec- ...
Some teachers might like to use a different model that shows more details of ...
There is a spherical orbital called 2s. ... So the second energy level can hold up
a p orbital. Atomic orbitals have different shapes. All s are spherical. ... All p
orbitals are shaped somewhat like a dumbbell, with the thin, pinched ... No matter
what its shape, an orbital can only hold a maximum of two electrons at any time.
In this lesson, we will talk about electron shells and the orbitals within them. ... If
your shell is n = 1, then the energy level is 1 and it has 1 subshell. ... Each of
these subshells (s, p, d and f) can hold a specific maximum numbers of electrons:
s =2, p = 6, d =10, and f ... The s orbitals have a spherical shape and are
s sublevels are spherically shaped. The p, d and f sublevels have more complex
shapes. s orbitals can hold a maximum of 2 electrons, p a maximum of 6 electron,
d a ... 1s sublevel will be found 99 percent of the time somewhere in a sphere
with a ... Given this, we can answer questions like: "what are potassium's electron
Oct 31, 2012 ... For example, energy level I can hold a maximum of two electrons, and ... in the
Figure below, some orbitals are shaped like spheres (S orbitals) ...
