Solution: Which set(s) of of quantum numbers describe a 4d orbital?

Problem

Which set(s) of of quantum numbers describe a 4d orbital?

Solution

To solve this problem, let’s first define the four quantum numbers:

  • principal quantum number (n) →energy level in orbitals and its value could be any positive integer starting from 1 to infinity
  • angular momentum quantum number (→ (l) has to be at least 1 less than nrange of values from 0 up to (n-1)
  • magnetic quantum number (m)→ range of values from - to +.
  • spin quantum number (ms→ can only be +1/2 or -1/2
