How many orbitals are in subshells with l equal to (a) 0; (b) 2; (c) 1; (d) 3?

The angular momentum quantum number (l) corresponds with the subshells so that l = 0 is the s-orbital, l = 1 is the p-orbital, l = 2 is the d-orbital, and l = 3 is the f-orbital. We know that the s-subshell has 1 orbital, the p-subshell has 3 orbitals, the d-subshell has 5 orbitals, and the f-subshell has 7 orbitals.

Using that information,
a. l = 0 --> s-subshell with 1 orbitals
b. l = 2 --> d-subshell with 5 orbitals
c. l = 1 --> p-subshell with 3 orbitals
d. l = 3 --> f-subshell with 7 orbital
