Possible Quantum Number Values

Postby emaad_3H » Sun Oct 20, 2019 9:16 pm

If the principal quantum number can go past 4 and the the orbital angular momentum quantum number can go up to a value of (n-1) but also represents the shape of the orbitals, does that mean that there are orbitals beyond the f subshell? What would that look like?

there aren't on the periodic table

There exists a g subshell, but theres no purpose to it because of the amount of electrons needed to create such an element would be super unstable. (The atom would have to have 121 electrons, to which the element would have a very hard time existing.)

There are orbitals that go beyond f, but I believe we only have to be familiar with s, p, d, and know that f exists.

There are orbitals past f, such as the g orbital for example. However, this orbital is very unstable. For this class, we only need to know how to use the s, p, and d orbitals and know of the f orbital.
