Homework Question 1.D13

Postby chrisavalos-2L » Sat Oct 20, 2018 1:04 pm

(a) How many values of the quantum number l are possible when n=7?



I was wondering if there is an equation that we have to use to find this number or is there are set of values that we should know?

The possible values are 0,1,2,3,4,5,6
The allowed values of L are 0,1,2,...,n-1.

There will be 7 values for l when n=7 but the highest value of l would be a 6. This is because l includes 0 as one of the values and to find the highest value of l we can use the equation (n-1).
