(a) What is the minimum value of 1 for a subshell that has 11 electrons in it?(b) If this subshell is in the n = 5 shell, what is the spectroscopic notation for this atom?

To determine

(a)

The minimum value of l if one subshell of an atom has 11 electrons in it.

Explanation

Given Data:

Given one subshell of an atom has 11 electrons in it.

Formula Used:

Number of electrons in a shell is given as

n=2(2l+1)

Where n= number of electrons

l= angular momentum quantum number

Calculation:

Given that one subshell of an atom has 9 electrons in it

Substituting n=11

We have,

To determine

(b)

The spectroscopic notation for this atom, if this subshell is part of the n=5 shell
