    Atomic orbitals with l=1; l is the angular momentum quantum number.

    Erm.... An orbital... One can carry up to 2 electrons, and are in threes so 3x2=6 elcetrons max..... If that makes sense....

    You didn't mean it, but that 3s could be read another way.

    "and are in threes" would have been advisable.

    Hiya, have you learnt the electron configuration using the different orbitals, (1S2, 2S2,2P6 etc.)?
    If not there is S,P,D and F ORBITALS. (These are split up and categorises the elements on the periodic table). The P orbital is the subsection for all of the elements in the NON-metals. D is the Transitional metals, F is Lanthanides and S is the Metals. Hope this helps! If not just send me a message and I'll go through in a bit more detail!!😊

    The sections of the periodic table are referred to as "blocks", not orbitals, and the p-block has plenty of semimetals.
