We’re being asked to determine what the angular momentum quantum number, ℓ determines in a hydrogen atom
Recall that the quantum numbers that define an electron are:
• Principal Quantum Number (n): The possible values for n are 1 to ∞.
• Angular Momentum Quantum Number (ℓ): The possible values for l are 0 to (n – 1).
What does the angular momentum quantum number determine in a hydrogen atom?
