7th Edition Book, Section 1.D #23

Postby AlyssaBei_1F » Mon Oct 22, 2018 9:20 am

In the 7th Edition Book, Section 1.D #23, it asks how many orbitals can have the following quantum numbers in an atom? I understand how to get a, b, and d, but I an confused on c) n=2. Can someone explain to me how the answer is 4?

If n=2, that means that l could be equal to either 0 or 1.
In the case of l=0, that means that ml=0.
In the case of l=1, that means ml=-1,0,+1.
This gives a possibility of having 4 orbitals altogether.
