i) maximum electrons is given by 2n2

so maximum electrons in n=3 is 2.3.3=18


ii) for a d subshell l=2,

no. of orbitals=2l+1=2*2+1=5

no. of electrons that can be accommodated=


iii) for a p orbital, l=1

no. of orbitals =2l+1 = 2*1+1=3

no. of electrons that can be accommodated=


iv) answer = 1
