Caption: Carbon atom. Diagram of an atom of the element carbon, showing the central nucleus surrounded by electron orbitals. Carbon is the sixth element, and has six protons (red) in its nucleus, along with six neutrons (blue). Carbon has six electrons, and each of its orbitals can hold a maximum of two. Orbitals are filled from the lowest energy (nearest the nucleus) first, so there are two electrons in the inner 1s orbital, and two in the higher energy 2s orbital (green spheres), and one each in two of the slightly higher energy 2p orbitals (blue and yellow). For clarity, solid lines show the paths of the electrons. In reality, electrons can be found anywhere, and the shape of each orbital is based only on where it is most likely to be found. For the same clip on a transparent background, see clip number K002 3036.
