Which element has three half filled orbitals in the sublevel 3P is Phosphorus (P)Phosphorus is in group 15 period 3 in the periodic table, therefore it is in the atomic number 15. Phosphorus electron configuration is 1S2 2S2 2P6 3S2 3P3 or [Ne] 3S2 3P3From the electronic configuration of phosphorus phosphorus 3p3 sub-level is without a cover since the p orbital can contain a maximum of 6 electrons.
