###### FREE Expert Solution

Recall that the quantum numbers that define an electron are:

Principal Quantum Number (n): possible values for n are 1 to ∞

Angular Momentum Quantum Number (l): possible values for l are 0 to n – 1

Magnetic Quantum Number (ml): possible values for ml are the range of –l to +l

Spin Quantum Number (ms): possible values for ms are either –1/2 (spin down) or +1/2 (spin up) ###### Problem Details

For each electron in a ground-state Beryllium atom, select the set of quantum numbers that represents it. Check all that apply.

a) n = 1, l= 0, ml= –1, ms= 1/2

b) n = 2, l= 0, ml= 0, ms= –1

c) n = 1, l= 0, ml= 0, ms= 1/2

d) n = 1, l= 0, ml= 0, ms= –1/2

e) n = 2, l= 0, ml= 0, ms= 1/2

f) n = 2, l= 1, ml= 0, ms= –1/2

g) n = 2, l= 1, ml= 1, ms= 1/2
