Problem

Of the following listed orbital choices - 1p, 2d, 3d, & 4f , only ___________ can exist.

a. 1p

b. 3d 

c. 2d and 3d

d. 3d, and 4f

e. 4f

Solution

Establish the first 3 quantum numbers and determine which set of values are valid

The first three quantum numbers are:

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 n,range of values from 0 up to (n-1)

magnetic quantum number (m)→ range of values from - to +.
