This is a science question so be prepared. lol

How many orbitals does hydrogen (H) have?
1 or 2 or 3

How many orbitals does oxygen (O) have?
1 or 2 or 3

  • science -

    hydrogen only has one electron, therefore it would have only one orbital

    oxygen has 8 electrons....the maximum number of electrons allowed in orbital 2 is 8. therefore it has 2 orbitals.
