Total number of orbitals altogether in three electron shells in different universe where quantum numbers follow the given rules has to be determined. Concept introduction: Quantum numbers are numbers, which explains the existence and the behavior of electron in an atom. a. Principle quantum number is represented by n and this number describes the energy of the orbital and the size of an atom. b. Angular momentum quantum number (or azimuthal quantum number) is represented by l and this number indicates the shape of the orbitals. c. Magnetic quantum number is represented by m l and this number indicates the orientation of the orbital. d. Spin quantum number is represented by m s and this number indicates the spin of the electron.

Chapter 6, Problem 80SCQ
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Total number of orbitals altogether in three electron shells in different universe where quantum numbers follow the given rules has to 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.
