# Solution: What label is given to a subshell or orbital with the quantum numbers n = 5 and l = 3?a. 5sb. 5pc. 5dd. 5fe. 5g

###### Problem

What label is given to a subshell or orbital with the quantum numbers n = 5 and l = 3?

a. 5s

b. 5p

c. 5d

d. 5f

e. 5g

###### Solution

Establish the first 3 quantum numbers and determine which label is represented by n = 5 and l = 3

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. View Complete Written Solution
