How many subshells occur in the electron shell with the principal quantum number n = 4?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The number of subshells in an electron shell when the principal quantum number is 4 should be determined.

Concept introduction:

Quantum numbers are numbers, which explains the existence and the behavior of electron in an atom.

  1. a) Principle quantum number is represented by n and this number describes the energy of the orbital and the size of an atom.
  2. b) Angular momentum quantum number (or azimuthal quantum number) is represented by l and this number indicates the shape of the orbitals.
  3. c) Magnetic quantum number is represented by ml and this number indicates the orientation of the orbital.
  4. d) Spin quantum number is represented by ms and this number indicates the spin of the electron.

The principal quantum number and number of subshells are same in a shell.

Explanation

The principal quantum number and number of subshells are same in a shell.

Therefore, when n
