    I don't know why that didn't post anything... But can't a f orbital hold 14 electrons? according to my professors online quiz it can't???

  • Chemistry *Urgent* -

    Since it is asking for ONE f orbital the answer would be C. 2. There are 7 f orbitals, each containing 2 electrons making the WHOLE f orbital to hold 14 electrons. As they are only asking for ONE, the answer would be two because each of the 7 f orbitals holds two.

    Hope this helped!
