Chapter 6, Problem 53GQ
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The maximum number of orbitals and number of nodal surfaces through the nucleus of s, p, d and f orbitals should be identified.

Concept introduction:

Nodal surfaces: the surface which passing through nucleus where there is zero chance of finding electrons.

The values of l (azimuthal quantum number) when the principal quantum number is n are from 0 to (n1). Each value of l indicates subshell and for l=0,2 and 3 represents s, d and f subshells.

In a subshell there are (2l+1) number of orbital
