Quantum Numbers

Postby martha-1I » Wed Oct 15, 2014 6:43 pm

I understand that once we know n, the orbital number of an electron, we can find L by subtracting one to n and the next quantum number can be found with the parameters of L to -L, but how do we find the next quantum number m(little s) and what does that quantum number tell us about the electron?
