Recall that the quantum numbers are:
• Principal Quantum Number (n): deals with the size and energy of the atomic orbital.
• Angular Momentum Quantum Number (l): deals with the shape of the atomic orbital.
• Magnetic Quantum Number (ml): deals with the orientation of the atomic orbital in 3D space.
• Spin quantum number (ms): describes the electron spin
What does the principal quantum number determine? Check all that apply.
a) the energy of an orbital
b) the possible number of electorns on particular orbital
c) the overall size of an atom
d) the overall size of an orbital
e) the shape of the orbital
f) the energy of the electron on the outer shell
g) the orientation of the orbital
