What are the principal and orbital angular momentum quantum numbers for each of the following orbitals: (a) 6p; (b) 3d; (c) 2p; (d) 5f?
To find the principal quantum number, just look at the number before the letter. To determine the angular momentum quantum number, use the following idea:
1. s = 0
2. p = 1
3. d = 2
4. f = 3
Thus, let's apply this idea to the problem:
(a) n = 6; l = 1
(b) n = 3; l = 2
(c) n = 2; l = 1
(d) n = 5; l = 3
