🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Lee's class at University of Western Ontario.

In this problem, we are asked to **find the number of orbitals **that would exist in an alternate universe in which the possible values of* l *are the integer values from

The **angular momentum quantum number (l)**, also known as the **azimuthal quantum number**, tells us the shape of the electron orbitals.

- It uses the variable
with a formula of n-1.**l**

The **magnetic quantum number ( m_{l}) **deals with the orientation of the orbital in the space around the nucleus.

- It is a range of the previous quantum number: -l to +l.

To solve this problem:

**Step 1. **List the possible values of the angular momentum quantum number.

**Step 2. **Determine the possible values of the magnetic quantum number.

**Step 3. **Count the total number of orbitals.

Suppose that in an alternate universe, the possible values of l are the integer values from 0 to n (instead of 0 to n - 1). Assuming no other differences between this universe and ours, how many orbitals would exist in each level in the alternate universe?

n = 2
