Question 2.27

Postby Robert Estrada » Mon Oct 23, 2017 7:20 pm

After you have figured out the subshell notation(like 6f), how or what do you use to figure out the number of orbitals having for each quantum number?

Write the subshell notation and the number of orbitals having the following quantum numbers:
a. n=5, l=2
b. n=1, l=0
c. n=6, l=3
d. n=2, l=1

You can tell how many orbitals there are based on the state. Like atoms in the p-orbital will have 3 orbitals which makes sense since the p orbital can hold 6 electrons, 2 per orbital. So since the d-orbital can hold 10 electrons, that must meant there are 5 orbitals and then so on for the rest of the orbitals.
