"How many electrons could occupy orbitals with the following quantum numbers?
a) n = 2, l = 0 b) n = 3, l =1, ml = 0 c) n = 4, l = 2 d) n = 1, l = 0, ml = 0"
I understand that each orbital can accommodate 2 electrons (do "orbitals" mean ml values?). I also understand that n = 1. n = 2, n = x is the coefficient 1, 2, and x respectively in front of the specific orbital. I know that the specific orbital is determined as follows: l = 0 ---> s, l = 1 ---> p, l = 2 ---> d, l = 3 ---> f. However, I do not know how to solve this problem. Could someone please explain it to me in a super simplistic way first by mentioning no theory but just steps and then incorporating the theory to it if possible?
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
