# What are the shapes of the S p & D sublevels?

## What are the shapes of the S p & D sublevels?

An s-orbital is spherical with the nucleus at its centre, a p-orbitals is dumbbell-shaped and four of the five d orbitals are cloverleaf shaped.

## What shape does the f sublevel have?

tetrahedral
The f orbital has 15 protons to complete a fifth level of a tetrahedral structure. The f orbital is more complex, but follows the same rules based on proton alignment as the p and d orbitals. When completely full it is similar to the d orbital, but cut in half (eight lobes instead of four).

What are the 4 different sublevels?

Level 4 has 4 sublevels – s, p, d, and f. These are pictured below. The sublevels contain orbitals. Orbitals are spaces that have a high probability of containing an electron.

Which set of orbitals can hold a maximum of 14 electrons?

seven f orbitals
The fourth and higher levels also have an f sublevel, containing seven f orbitals, which can hold a maximum of 14 electrons.

### Which sublevel Cannot exist?

In the 1st energy level, electrons occupy only in the s sublevel, so there is no d sublevel. In the 3rd energy level, electrons occupy only the s, p, and d sublevels, so there is no f sublevel.

### Which is the shape of the s sublevel?

The s-sublevel is made up of a singular orbital holding a maximum of 2 electrons. It is a spherical shape. The f-sublevel is made up of a 7 different orbitals and holds a maximum of 14 electrons.

How many orbitals does the s sublevel have?

The s sublevel has just one orbital, so can contain 2 electrons max. The p sublevel has 3 orbitals, so can contain 6 electrons max. The d sublevel has 5 orbitals, so can contain 10 electrons max. And the 4 sublevel has 7 orbitals, so can contain 14 electrons max.
