Do we need to know the Orbital angular momentum equation?

What is the orbital angular momentum equation?

I don't believe that knowing the equation is necessary. I think it's just important to know that angular momentum is denoted by the letter "l" and that it can be calculated by subtracting the principle quantum number, n, by 1.

In other words, l = n-1

The angular momentum quantum number (l) describes the shape of the atomic orbital.
Allowed values: l = 0 (s-orbital), 1(p-orbital), 2(d-orbital), ..., n-1; each l is called a subshell.

I don't think so
