FREE Expert Solution

Angular Momentum Quantum Number (l): deals with the shape of the atomic orbital. 

The possible values for l are 0 to (n – 1).


Magnetic Quantum Number (ml)deals with the orientation of the atomic orbital in 3D space. 

The possible values for ml are the range of l:  –l to +l.
