Quantum Numbers

Postby Amina Durrani 3G » Sun Oct 20, 2019 6:03 pm

Is the third quantum number m or ml ? I remember learning the other two were n and l but I couldn’t tell from the slides if the third was m or ml

The third quantum number is ml, which is the magnetic quantum number (orientation).

The third quantum number is ml, and it stands for the magnetic quantum number; it specifies the orbital that an electron occupies, such as determining the orientation in relation to other orbitals.
