# What is the total number of orbitals in the main level n=2​

7 orbitals

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.

Explanation:hope it helps:'')

The fourth and higher levels also have an f sublevel, containing seven f orbitals, which can hold a maximum of 14 electrons. Thus, the fourth level can hold up to 32 electrons: 2 in the s orbital, 6 in the three p orbitals, 10 in the five d orbitals, and 14 in the seven f orbitals.

Quantum Numbers

Explanation:

To calculate the amount of orbitals from the principal quantum number, use n2. There are n2 orbitals for each energy level. For n = 1, there is 12 or one orbital. For n = 2, there are 22 or four orbitals.
