PROBLEM 19Q

List the four possible subshells in the quantum-mechanical model, the number of orbitals in each subshell, and the maximum number of electrons that can be contained in each subshell.

Solution 19Q

The possible subshells in the quantum- mechanical model depend on the following factors.

(1)Principal quantum number (n): It determines the size and energy of an orbital.

En = -2.18 x10-18 J (1/n2), where n = 1, 2, 3…

(2) The Angular Momentum Quantum Number ( l): It is an integer that determines the shape of the orbital.

Where l = 0, 1, 2,3, (n - 1).

(3) The Magnetic Quantum Number ( ml ): It is an integer...
