For s, p, d, and f orbitals, how many electrons can each hold?
The subshells s, p, d, and f contain the following number of orbitals respectively, where every orbital can hold up to two electrons maximum:
s: 1 orbital, 2 electrons.
p: 3 orbitals, 6 electrons.
d: 5 orbitals, 10 electrons.
f: 7 orbitals, 14 electrons.
