Finding number of elements that have given quantum numbers

Postby Jessica Dharmawan 1G » Mon Oct 29, 2018 9:17 am

What is the easiest way to find the number of elements that have given quantum numbers?
Example: given n = 5 and l = 1, how many elements can have these quantum numbers?

id just locate the fifth row of the periodic table, and then focus on the l value and which orbital it correlates to. For your example, it would be the p orbital, which means only 6 elements would have n=5 and l=1, those elements in the p block of the 5th row
