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?

Hi Martha,

This is a link to my answer. I typed it on word document so that I could format the answer more clearly.
