Could someone explain how to determine where the electron would be located based off of this information?
The way to figure it out from my understanding is that 4 is the energy level it is in (the principle quantam number n equals 4 in this case) and f is determined by what l is equal to. In this case, the value of l, which is 3, corresponds with the the l value for the f orbital. Thus the answer, if put together, would be 4f.
