Assume that each orbital can be occupied by a maximum of two electrons. Write the subshell notation (3d, for instance) and the number of orbitals that have the following quantum numbers:
(a) n=4, l=1; (b) n=5, l=0; (c) n=6, l=2; (d) n=7, l=3

If you refer to your 1D.21 post, the explanation is the same. So you would get the answers,

a.) 4p, number of orbitals: 3
b.) 5s, number of orbitals: 1
c.) 6d, number of orbitals: 5
d.) 7f, number of orbitals: 7

(Heres is the explanation again)
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!
