Interpreting the quantum numbers:
(3,1,-1,+1/2)

Qunatum numbers are given in the following order:
1. Principal quantum number (n) - describes the energy level in which the electron can be found. Has a whole number, with positive value, from 1 to 7.
2. Azimuthal quantum number (l) - describes the shape of the orbital. Can ...

Combination of four quantum numbers

Please see the attached file for full problem details.

6. What does the combination of four quantum numbers (QN) specify?

What does the combination of two quantum numbers specify?

List the possible values of l if n = 3

List the possible values of ml if l = 3

Which of the following combination of quantum numbers (QN) are allowed (circle)?

n = 2, l = 0 n = 2, l = 3 n = 4, l = 2, ml = 0 n = 2, l = 1, ml = -1 n = 3, l = 1, ml = 0, ms = + 1/2 n = - 2

How many orbitals for a given n will have l = 2? If l = 0? If l = 1? If l = 3?

What is the subshell name if l = 3? If l = 0? If l = 1? If l = 2?
