We’re being asked to determine which subshells from n = 4 are missing from the given diagram.
Let’s refer to the illustration of the periodic table below:
General energy ordering of orbitals for a many-electron atom.
Not all of the orbitals in the n = 4 shell are shown in this figure. Which subshells are missing?
