Expert Answer:

Energy levels are the shells around the nucleus where electrons are present and and energy levels are imaginary boundary and can be infinite in number around the nucleus and it is not important that electron can present upto infinite energy shell, it depends on element to element.. An atom has not real boundary but the maximum size of an atom is of the order of 10-8 cm.The centrifugal force of attraction provide by positively charged nucleus.
