🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Penner's class at UCI.

Solution: If l = 2, what can you deduce about n?a. n = 2b. n > 2c. n ≥ 2d. n < 2e. n ≤ 2

Problem

If = 2, what can you deduce about n?

a. n = 2

b. n > 2

c. n ≥ 2

d. n < 2

e. n ≤ 2

Solution

We’re being asked to deduce the value of n from l


Recall that the quantum numbers that define an electron are:


• Principal Quantum Number (n): deals with the size and energy of the atomic orbital

The possible values for n are 1 to ∞.

• 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 is the range of l: –l to +l.
