## What label is given to an orbital with quantum numbers n = 4 and l= 1? (a) 4s (b) 4p (c) 4d (d) 4f

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The label of orbital with quantum numbers n=4 and l=1 is to be determined from the given option.

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.

### Explanation of Solution

Reason for correct option

The principal quantum number is n=4 . Each value of l indicates subshell. For l=1 , it indicates p subshell. The possible values of ml are, ml=1,0,1 . Hence, n=4 and l=1 represents a 4p orbital
