Answer

x= 10.043

Work Step by Step

1 a) 5f The 'f' sub-shell has 7 orbitals, where there would be 2 electrons in each orbital, resulting in 14 electrons in total. 2 b) 4p The 'p' sub-shell has 3 orbitals, where there would be 2 electrons in each orbital, resulting in 14 electrons in total. 3 c) 5d The 'd' sub-shell has 5 orbitals, in which there are 2 electrons in each orbital, totaling to 14 electrons in the whole 'd' sub-shell. 4 d) n=2 n (principle) describes the coefficient or shell number, which in this case is 2. The second shell includes 2 sub-shells-- 2s and 2p. 2s has 1 orbital and 2p has 3 orbitals, therefore the 2nd shell has 5 orbitals.
