Homework Question 2.41

Postby Jonathan Marcial Dis 1K » Thu May 10, 2018 1:45 pm

For part B) could someone help me with understanding why quantum number {5,0,-1,+1/2} is invalid?

Thanks!

since n= 5 then n-1, to get ml, 5-1 is = is 4. l in that problem is 0. based on what you gave me.
but generally n= the number. to get l it is n-1. to get ml it is -l to l values.

Mohamad is correct, to find the value of l you first start with the value of n which in this case is 5. To solve for l, you use the equation n-1=l. Therefore, the only possible solution of l would be 5-1 to give a value of l=4.

do you think that Lavelle will focus on quantum on the final or more VESPR and more recent material?
