Homework question 2.1

Postby Jonathan Marcial Dis 1K » Thu May 03, 2018 8:34 pm

Can someone help explain what n and l represent in sense of this problem. I do know that the radius will increase and I do know that the energy of the electron will increase, but I can’t quite understand n and l. Thanks.

If you look on Page 178 on our textbook you can see a chart that describes what each symbol means. N represents the shell of the atom (which is basically size). L is the subshell of the atom which represents the overall shape. I hope this helped!
