## Match the values of l shown in the table with orbital type (s, p, d, or f).

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The orbitals for the given values of l should be identified.

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.

Angular momentum quantum number (or azimuthal quantum number) is represented by l and this number indicates the shape of the orbitals. Each value of l indicates subshell.

### Explanation of Solution

Angular momentum quantum number (or azimuthal quantum number) is represented by l and this number indicates the shape of the orbitals.

The values of l when the principal quantum number is n are from 0 to (n1). Each value of l indicates subshell.

Therefore for l=0,1,2 and 3 represents s, p, d and f subshells For p subshells, l=1
