HW D13

For part c and d, how would you go about determining the values asked for from the given state of the electron? I guess my bigger question is how would you figure out values of n,l, and ml from a given 6d subshell, or something like that?

Yeah, I am also confused about this problem. For question b, too. What does 6d subshell translate to in terms of l and n values?
(I apologize for not answering your question!)

well i think n is the shell number which is equivalent to how many energy levels an atom has so 6D would have n = 6 . since it is a d orbital, l = 2 i believe

l = 0; s orbital
l = 1; p orbital
l = 2; d orbital

This is what I got after doing the question:

b. There are five values: 2, 1, 0, -1 and -2

c. There are three values: 1, 0 and -1

d. There are four subshells: 4s, 4p, 4d, and 4f

I hope this helps.
