We’re being asked todetermine how many orbitals in an atomcan have each of thefollowing designations.
You are watching: How many orbitals (in an atom) can have the following designation?
Recall that thequantum numbersthat define an electron are:
•Principal Quantum Number(n): deals with thesize and energy of the atomic orbital.
Thepossible values for nare1 to ∞.
•Angular Momentum Quantum Number(l): deals with theshape of the atomic orbital.
Thepossible values for lare0 to (n – 1).
•Magnetic Quantum Number(ml): deals with theorientation of the atomic orbitalin 3D space.
Thepossible values for mlis the range of l:–l to +l.
