Problem 51E

Quantum Mechanics and Atomic Orbitals (Sections)

(a) For n = 4, what are the possible values of l? (b) For l = 2, what are the possible values of ml? (c) If ml is 2, what are the possible values for l?

THE HEART OF THE MATTER ● the lighter chemical elements are the most abundant on earth ○ the heavier (gold) = more rare ● both space and time came out of the Big Bang ● string/loop of energy is the one basic particle ● gravity doesn’t fit or work well with quantum theory ● string theory = only theory so far that reconciles Quantum Theory and gravity ○ doesn’t mean that its correct ● each particle is a different note or vibration mode of the same elemental string ● one string can vibrate in different ways to produce a whole series of particles with wildly different properties ● as many as 7 extra dimensions and dozens of new particles must be added ● extra dimensions coiled up everywhere around us
