Hi, Ellie. Please describe the difficulty you are having with the question instead of simply writing the question number. This will help others navigate Chemistry Community more effectively while also assisting the development of your own chemical intuition.

You need to look at each separately
a) energy of electron increases as we increase n from 1 to 2
b) we are going from 1s to 2p so n is increasing
c) the s orbital has l=0 and the p orbital has l=1 so it is increasing
d) radius of atom increases when n increases

Return to “Wave Functions and s-, p-, d-, f- Orbitals”
