    Quantum Numbers
    What is the maximum number of electrons in an atom that can have the following quantum numbers?

    n=2, m=-1/2

    n=5, l=3

    n=4, l=3, m=-3

    n=4, l=1, m=1

    To summarize first...

    n is the Principle Quantum Number (Values =1,2,3,...)
    This is the number in front of the letter

    l is the orbital angular quantum number (Values = 0,1,...,n-1)
    This represents ...
