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.**

n = 4, ℓ= 0, mℓ= 1, ms= 1/2

n = 3, ℓ= –2, mℓ= –1, ms= –1/2

n = 5, ℓ= 3, mℓ= 1, ms= 1/2

n = 3, ℓ= 3, mℓ= 0, ms= 1/2

n = 2, ℓ= 1, mℓ= 0, ms= 0

n = 3, ℓ= 2, mℓ= –1, ms= 1/2

please help this is due tomorrow thank you

Answer #1

for option 1:

Value of l is 0

So, valid values of ml are [0]

so, ml can't be 1

Hence, this is not allowed

for option 2:

l can't be negative

l can't be -2

Hence, this is not allowed

for option 3:

This is allowed

for option 4:

l must be less than n

Here value of n is 3

But value of l is 3

so, l can't be 3

Hence, this is not allowed

for option 5:

ms can be -1/2 or 1/2.

It can’t be 0

Hence, this is not allowed

for option 6:

This is allowed
