quantum numbers

Postby Midori Hupfeld 3D » Sun Oct 20, 2019 10:53 pm

In lecture, we found what the possible n, l, and ml values could be. Will there ever be a situation where we have to determine the specific value for a quantum number? If so, how do we know?

If you are given the value of one of the quantum numbers, you can figure out the specific value for the other quantum numbers. For example if you are given a value for n, you can find the possible values of l and ml.

You might be given something like 4s2 and will have to find the four quantum numbers associated with that electron. N would be 4 and you would go off of that.
