Write the subshell notation (3d, for instance) and the number of orbitals having the following quantum numbers:
(a) n=5, l=2; (b) n=1, l=0; (c) n=6, l=3; (d) n=2, l=1

a.) 5d, number of orbitals: 5
b.) 1s, number of orbitals: 1
c.) 6f, number of orbitals: 7
d.) 2p, number of orbitals: 3

The n-value stays as is and precedes the letter that indicates the orbital.The l-value corresponds to a s,p,d or f orbital (l=0 is the s orbital, l=1 is the p orbital, l=2 is the d orbital, l=3 is the f orbital). Then to find the number of orbitals: s=1 orbital, p=3 orbitals, d=5 orbitals, and f= 7 orbitals. Hope this helps!
