Worksheet: Max # of e- / NRG Level


Calculate the maximum number of electrons in each of the following energy levels. Use the equation (2N2), where N = the energy level. NOTE: There are only 7 “real” energy levels.

  1. ENERGY LEVEL 4

  1. ENERGY LEVEL 5
  1. ENERGY LEVEL 8

  1. ENERGY LEVEL 55

Below are the maximum numbers of electrons in an energy level. Which energy level is it?

  1. 392 electrons

  1. 1458 electrons
  1. 484 electrons
  1. 22 electrons

  1. Explain why 35 electrons could not be a possible maximum number of electrons in an energy level.
