Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Number of electrons that can occupy any orbit is 2*(2l+1), l =0,1,2,3 corresponding to s,p,d and f labels respectively

Maximum value occurs at l=3, that is 2*(2*3+1) = 2*7 = 14

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
