## When there are two electrons in the 3s sublevel?

## When there are two electrons in the 3s sublevel?

This is in accordance with Pauli’s exclusion principle which states that, “only two electrons may exist in the same orbital with three quantum numbers same, i.e. the fourth quantum number different and these electrons must have opposite spins.”

## What are the sublevels in Level 3?

Level 3 has 3 sublevels – s, p, and d. Level 4 has 4 sublevels – s, p, d, and f. These are pictured below. The sublevels contain orbitals.

**How many orbitals are in sublevel 3?**

There are 9 orbitals in 3rd energy level.

### Does the 3p sublevel have 3 electrons?

phosphorus has three electrons in its 3p sub level.

### How many electrons are in 3s orbital?

2

The third shell holds 18 electrons; 2 in a 3s orbital; 6 in three 3p orbitals; and 10 in five 3d orbitals.

**How many electrons can 3p hold?**

6 electrons

CORRECT ANSWER SOLUTION n=3,1 = 1 means that is 3p orbital so it can accommodate maximum 6 electrons.

#### Why are there 3 orbitals in the p sublevel?

P sublevels have three orbitals, each of which can hold a maximum of 2 electrons with opposite spins, for a total of 6 electrons. The following orbital diagram represents the filling of the orbitals of the noble gas argon. Note that the 2p and 3p sublevels each have three orbitals with six electrons each.

#### How many electrons are in a 3d orbital?

1 Answer. A single 3d orbital can contain a maximum of two electrons with opposite spins.

**How many electrons occupy a filled 3d sublevel?**

10 electrons

5 atomic orbitals in 5d sublevel x 2 electrons/orbital = 10 electrons can reside in the 3d sublevel.

## How many electrons are in a 4d sublevel?

The 4d subshell has 5 orbitals and therefore, it can have a maximum of 10 electrons in its subshell.

## How many electrons are there in N3?

There are 16 valence electrons for the Lewis structure for N3-.

**What is the total number of electrons in a N3 ion?**

One atom of neutral nitrogen element contains 7 electrons because its atomic number is 7. But here nitrogen gains three extra electrons which provide it with three negative charges. So one nitride atom contains a total of 10 electrons. Number of electrons contained by one atom is 10.

### How many electrons can 3p subshell?

Explanation: p subshell always has 3 orbitals and each orbital can accomodate maximum 2 electrons. So, p subshell can accomodate maximum 6 electrons. Thus, 3p subshell of Xe also have 6 electrons.

### How many electrons are in 3d orbitals?

**How many electrons can a 3s orbital hold?**

2 electrons

Any orbital can hold a maximum of 2 electrons with opposite spin. The first shell has one 1s orbital and holds 2 electrons. The second shell holds 8 electrons; 2 in a 2s orbital and 6 in three 2p orbitals. The third shell holds 18 electrons; 2 in a 3s orbital; 6 in three 3p orbitals; and 10 in five 3d orbitals.

#### How many electrons are in the 3D sublevel?

The third energy level, n=3, contains the 3s, 3p, and 3d sublevels. The maximum number of electrons in the 3s sublevel is two, the maximum number of electrons in the 3p subsevel is six, and the maximum number of electrons in the 3d sublevel is ten.

#### How many atomic orbitals are there in the 3s sublevel?

Therefore, there is 1 atomic orbital in the 3 s sublevel. In any p-subshell, there are 3 atomic orbitals. Therefore, there are 3 atomic orbitals in the 3 p sublevel. In any d-subshell, there are and 5 atomic orbitals.

**How many electrons can be placed in the 3rd energy level?**

Why can a total of 18 electrons can be placed in the 3rd energy level? The total number of electrons possible in the sublevels of the 3rd energy level is 18. The third energy level, n=3, contains the 3s, 3p, and 3d sublevels.

## What is the maximum number of electrons in a sublevel?

There can be two electronsin one orbital maximum. The s sublevel has just one orbital, so can contain 2 electrons max. The p sublevel has 3 orbitals, so can contain 6 electrons max. The d sublevel has 5 orbitals, so can contain 10 electrons max. And the 4 sublevel has 7 orbitals, so can contain 14 electrons max.
