If the electron absorbs energy of the right amount, such as visible light, infrared (heat), or ultraviolet, the electron can jump to a higher orbit or "energy level" in the atom. Each principle energy level is comprised of different sub-levels: s, p, d and f. The s sub-level can hold a maximum of two electrons; p sub-level can hold a maximum of 6; d sub-level can hold a maximum of 10 and f, a maximum of 14 Each sub-level is comprised of atomic orbitals which define the approximate boundaries of the electron orbit. Each orbital can hold up to two electrons, so a s sub-level has one orbital; a p sub-level has three orbitals; a d sub-level has five orbitals and a f sub-level has seven. http://www.chemicool.com/definition/sublevel.html
