Simply so, what are the possible values of L for each value of n?
Because n=3, the possible values of l = 0, 1, 2, which indicates the shapes of each subshell.
- Principal shell with n = 1 has one s subshell (l = 0)
- Principal shell with n = 2 has one s subshell and one p subshell (l = 0, 1)
- Principal shell with n = 3 has one s subshell, one p subshell, and one d subshell (l = 0, 1, 2)
Similarly, what value or values of ML are allowable for an orbital with L 2? Therefore, given l=2 , the possible ml values are −2,−1,0,1,2 . This tells us that the d subshell contains five d orbitals, each with a different orientation ( dyz , dxy , dxz , dx2−y2 , and dz2 ).
Considering this, what are the possible values of ML when L 1?
Answer: the possible values of ml are -1, 0 and +1 because the range of values are from -l to +l.
How many possible combinations are there for the values of L and ML when n 5?
Answer and Explanation: When n = 5 l can be 0, 1, or 2. These values correspond to an s, p, d and f orbitals. The ml values range from -3 to +3.
