Could someone explain how we are able to get 2,1,0,-1,-2 when we are finding the magnetic quantum numbers(ml) for the d orbitals. I know it goes l, l-1,..-l but how do we get -1 from this pattern? I am thinking 2,1,0(l-2), but would we get -1 from l-3 or something else? Could someone explain the pattern?
The easiest way to make sure you got all the number is to make sure that their is a one value for the about of subshells present in the orbital (aka if you are dong the d orbital there should be 5 numbers: 2,1,0,-1,-2)
