Question

Quantum numbers arise naturally from the mathematics used to describe the possible states of an electron in an atom. The four quantum numbers, the principal quantum number (n), the angular momentum quantum number (ℓ), the magnetic quantum number (mℓ), and the spin quantum number (ms) have strict rules which govern the possible values. Identify allowable combinations of quantum numbers for an electron. Select all that apply.

a) n=4, l=2, ml=3, ms=+1/2

b) n=6, l=6, ml= 1, ms=-1/2

c) n=3, l=1, ml= -1, ms= -1/2

d) n=2, l=0, ml=0, ms= 1

e) n=5, l=0, ml=0, ms= -1/2

f) n= 3, l= -1, ml= -1, ms= +1/2

Answer #1

a) n=4, l=2, ml=3, ms=+1/2 not allowed : ml should be + l to -l

b) n=6, l=6, ml= 1, ms=-1/2 not allowed l value must be lessthan n value.

c) n=3, l=1, ml= -1, ms=
-1/2
**allowed**

d) n=2, l=0, ml=0, ms= 1 not allowed ms will be always +1/2 or - 1/2

e) n=5, l=0, ml=0, ms= -1/2
**allowed**

f) n= 3, l= -1, ml= -1, ms= +1/2 allowed l should be positive

Quantum numbers arise naturally from the mathematics used to
describe the possible states of an electron in an atom. The four
quantum numbers, the principal quantum number (n), the angular
momentum quantum number (ℓ), the magnetic quantum number (mℓ), and
the spin quantum number (ms) have strict rules which govern the
possible values. Identify allowable combinations of quantum numbers
for an electron. Select all that apply.
n = 4, ℓ= 0, mℓ= 1, ms= 1/2
n = 3, ℓ= –2,...

Question 3
Part B:How many values of ml are possible for an
electron with orbital quantum number l = 1?
Express your answer as an integer.
Part C
The quantum state of a particle can be specified by giving a
complete set of quantum numbers (n,l,
ml,ms). How many different
quantum states are possible if the principal quantum number is
n = 2?
To find the total number of allowed states, first write down the
allowed orbital quantum numbers l,...

A possible quantum combination of quantum numbers for the single
valence shell electron of K in the ground state is:
