The maximum number of electrons found on energy levels one through six are two, eight, 18, 32, 50 and 72. The formula for determining the number of electrons is two multiplied by n squared, or 2n^2. More » Science Physics Electricity

The number of electrons present in a given energy level depends on the element. The formula for determining the electron capacity for each energy level is "two times n squared," where n is equal to the number of the leve... More » Science Biology Cells

The maximum number of electrons that an energy level can hold is determined from the formula 2n^2 equals the total number, where n is the energy level. Thus, the first energy level holds 2 * 1^2 = 2 electrons, while the ... More » Science Chemistry Atoms & Molecules
