What is the difference between the principal quantum number for a particle and the principal quantum number for an electron?
Isn't the quantum number just the energy level, so it would be the same for both? I am also confused by this.
when we talk about the principle quantum number for a particle, we are referring to electrons
the particle is the electron. the principle quantum number is the orbital the electron rotates in (S,P,D,F)
