6 electrons


Given that n (your principle quantum number) is 3, and s (your angular quantum number) is 1,

  • n=3 means that we're talking about the third energy level.
  • l=1 means that we're referring to the p - subshell

We know that p-subshells can hold 6 electrons across their orbitals, and therefore we'd have 6 electrons in the 3p subshell.
