Test 2 outline

Postby Daniel_Frees_1L » Wed Oct 24, 2018 3:05 pm

The Section 2 outline says we should be able to "List the allowed energy levels of a bound electron in terms of the quantum numbers n, l, and ml."

Does this just mean we should understand how to fill orbitals and know what outer shell number (n), shape (l), and orientation (ml) are?
ie: knowing what 3px means

if not, what does this mean?

Yes. Basically, know what all the quantum numbers are and what they mean and know how to use them to label a given orbital.

Hey there, are electron configurations on quiz 2?

No, electron configurations are Week 4 material, so they should be on the midterm/final and following test. We do need to know the wave function numbers though (n,l,m) and orbitals etc. Hope this helps!

Sorry for replying so late, I just wanted to say thank you so much. And, yes, it did help!
