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

a) 1; (b) 5; (c) 3; (d) 7
orbitals for l can be calculated by 2l+1

Another way to do this is match the letters spdf to the l numbers: 0 is s, 1 is p, 2 is d, and 3 is f. As mentioned in class the number of orbitals for s,p,d,f is 1,3,5,7 respectively.

This was a really great of calculating orbitals for l, thanks! Super easy and memorable!
