F orbital

How many suborbitals can electrons fill in the f orbital?

7, so a filled f orbital would have 14 total electrons

A good conceptual concept to remember is that a shell is bigger than a sub shell which is bigger than an orbital

Shell > Subshell > orbital

the F subshell has 7 orbitals, and therefore can hold 14 electrons. I dont think we need to be too familiar with the F subshell fro the midterm.

There are 7 orbitals. In these 7 orbitals, 14 electrons can occupy these orbitals because 2 can fit in each.

The F section has 7 orbitals so it can fill up to a total of 14 electrons.
