Subshells and Orbitals

Postby Reina Robles 2B » Fri Oct 04, 2019 9:42 pm

I read that the number of subshells in an atom's shell corresponds to the principal quantum number, but is there a pattern to how many orbitals are in each subshell? Thanks!

For sublevels, you have your s, p, d, and f sublevels. The s sublevel has 1 orbital, the p has 3, d has 5, and f has 7
