check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1

Orbital:

Orbital, a mathematical expression, called a wave function, an orbital is used to find the electron.

Number of electrons in the shells is given below,

Each shell contains only a fixed number of electrons. T...

Therefore
In the second shell (n 2) have 2s orbital and 2p orbitals
The maximum number of electrons is caleulated by using following formula,
Maximum number of electrons 2n2
