So i know that sometimes you can have ten electrons in the valence shell by using the d orbital but is there ever a time when you have even more in the valence shell? Do you ever use the f orbital to accommodate more electrons?

For chemistry 14a, we are only using the exception to the octet rule to accommodate for the d block. So any element in the 3rd period or beyond can have an expanded octet. I don't believe we have to expand this rule for the f block yet in this class.

Thank you for these explanations. Y’all are my heroes.
