Problem

The orientation in space of an atomic orbital is associated with 

a. the principal quantum number (n). 

b. the angular momentum quantum number (l). 

c. the magnetic quantum number (m l). 

d. the spin quantum number (ms).

e. none of the above.

Solution

Let us go through the definitions of each quantum number. 

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