i think the matter is wrong

Kind of confusing/self-contradictory[change source]

"The number of electrons that can be in a shell is equal to {\displaystyle 2n^{2}} {\displaystyle 2n^{2}}." This should mean the shells are 2 8 18 32, but later is says 2 6 10 14 18. It sounds like this may depend on the row "second and third periods" or column "noble gasses" "transition metals", but it doesn't say anything about the orbitals of other rows/columns.

The whole subshell thing could be better explained too. (talk) 17:12, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
