# How many orbitals are in the FOURTH (n=4) shell?

0

• one 2 orbital

three p orbitals

5 d orbitals

7 f orbitals

16 Orbitals overall

• N 4 Orbital

• The fourth shell has 4 subshell: the “s” subshell, which has 1 orbital with 2 electrons, the “p” subshell, which has 3 orbitals with 6 electrons, the “d” subshell, which has 5 orbitals with 10 electrons, and the “f” subshell, which has 7 orbitals with 14 electrons, for a total of 16 orbitals and 32 electron.

• 16 orbitals

total number of orbital=n^2

where n=1,2,3,4,5……

Here n=4

So n^2=4^2

• 16 orbitals, because 4^2 = 16

• You have the 1s, 2s, 2p, 3s, 3p, 4s, and 4p orbitals. Remember that the 1s orbital only has 2 electrons. The s orbital has only 1 axis (known as the electron cloud), and the p orbital has 3 axis (x,y,z).

• I’m pretty sure it’s 8

• I think its 6.

• Man, is it REALLY that hard to do your homework the old fashioned way?
