## What are the sublevels of the periodic table?

Recall that the four different sublevels each consist of a different number of orbitals. The s sublevel has one orbital, the p sublevel has three orbitals, the d sublevel has five orbitals, and the f sublevel has seven orbitals.

## How are the elements arranged in the periodic table?

In the modern periodic table, the elements are listed in order of increasing atomic number. The atomic number is the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom. In a periodic table arranged in order of increasing atomic number, elements having similar chemical properties naturally line up in the same column (group).

How many elements are in the 2p sublevel?

six elements
Since there are three 2 p orbitals and each orbital holds two electrons, the 2p sublevel is filled after six elements.

### What are the 4 sublevels of an atom?

If you are just starting to study chemistry, you should only be concerned with the first 4 sublevels. Each sublevel is assigned a letter. The four you need to know are s (sharp), p (principle), d (diffuse), and f (fine or fundamental). So, s,p,d & f.

### What are sublevels in electron configuration?

The sublevels contain orbitals. 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.

What are the types of sublevels?

Recall that the four different sublevels (s, p, d, and f) each consist of a different number of orbitals. The s sublevel has one orbital, the p sublevel has three orbitals, the d sublevel has five orbitals, and the f sublevel has seven orbitals.

#### What is the correct sublevels designated?

sublevels are designated as s, p, d, f, g,…. sublevels, respectively. For known elements no value of l higher than 3 (f sublevel) is necessary. Two quantum numbers (n and l) are required to specify a particular energy sublevel.
