Problem

The accompanying drawing shows a contour plot for a dyz orbital. Consider the quantum numbers that could potentially correspond to this orbital.

The D subscript yx orbital appears as four teardrop shapes oriented diagonally in the xz plane between the x and z axes; the teardrops form an X shape.

What is the smallest possible value of the principal quantum number, n?
