PROBLEM 2.21

Postby april_bussey_1C » Sun Apr 29, 2018 10:14 pm

2.21 What are the principal and orbital angular momentum
quantum numbers for each of the following orbitals: (a) 6p;
(b) 3d; (c) 2p; (d) 5f?

I'm having a hard time understanding where to start with this problem. can anyone help me please?

For principal it is just the n value, so you would look at the row number on the periodic table or in this case just the number given. Then for the angular its the l values (0,1,2,3) and they correspond to the s,p,d,f orbitals.
