Question 5 from week 5 review

Postby Husnia Safi - 1K » Wed May 09, 2018 9:01 am

How many orbitals have l=2 and n=3?
Would I just need to find Ml? so would the answer be 5 since Ml= (-2,-1,0,1,2)?

Since l is 2, we know this orbital will be a d orbital (l = 0 is s, l = 1 is p, l = 2 is d, l = 3 is f) and that its energy level will be 3, so the orbital will be 3d with 5 of these orbitals (just like how you had it). This orbital can hold 10 electrons.
