The 4 Quantum Numbers provide us the coordinates to find the theoretical location of an electron.

The First 3 Quantum Numbers

Concept #1: The Quantum Mechanical Picture of the Atom 

Concept #2: The Quantum Sublevels

The main atomic sub-levels are the s, p, d and f. The sublevels have a set number of electron orbitals, each which can hold two electrons.

Concept #3: The Principal Quantum Number (n)

The principal quantum number tells us the size and energy of an electron orbital. 

Concept #4: Calculate the principal quantum number of each atomic sublevel.

7p, 5s, 3d, 4f

Concept #5: The Angular Momentum Quantum Number (l)

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

Concept #6: The Magnetic Quantum Number (mL)

The magnetic quantum number deals with the orientation of the orbital in the space around the nucleus. 

Example #1: What l or ml values are allowed if n = 2? How many orbitals exist for n = 2? 

 

How many electrons can have the following quantum sets?

    a)    n = 4

      b)     n = 3, l = 1

      c)    n = 4, mL = -2

      d)    n = 5, l = 2,  mL = -2

Practice: Provide the n, l and ml value for each of the given orbitals.

Practice: State all the l and ml values possible if the principal quantum number is equal to 3.
