This question is:
How many orbitals are there in each of the following energy levels..
a) 1s
b) 6p
c) 10f
d) 7d
e) 5s

Now.. do i use n^2 for the number of orbitals in each energy level?
Ex. b) would be 36
OR can i state the number of orbitals in each sublevel using the shape?
Ex. b) would be 3

Please help :)

    You have 1 s orbital, no matter where it is. You have 3 p orbitals, 5 d orbitals, 7 f orbitals.
    spdf= 1,3,5,7
    electrons in each = 2,6,10, 14
