    l is the number that is connected to the total angular momentum of the electron:

    L^2 = l(l+1)*hbar

    Tha possible values for l are: l = 0,1,...,n-1

    ml is the qyuantum number that is associated with the projection of the angular momentum vector on teh z axis:

    Lz = m*hbar

    ml can attain the following ...
