How Many Electrons in Each Energy Level?

In this example lets look at how many electrons are in each energy level in gold. Using the electron configuration table you see that gold has 6 energy levels. Each energy level in an atom are as follows: level 1 has 2 electrons, level 2 has 8 electrons, level 3 has 18 electrons, level 4 has 32 electrons, level 5 has 18 electrons and level 6 (the highest energy level) contains 1 electron.
