Quantum numbers for three dimensional electron orbitals “n” - principle quantum number - size of orbital - n 2 sets of quantum numbers for each n. n = 1, 2, 3, 4,… “l” - angular momentum quantum number - shape of orbital l = 0, 1, 2,… n-1 l = s, p, d, f,…n-1 • “m l ” - magnetic quantum number - direction of orbital relative to magnetic field - for each l there are 2l+1 orbitals m l = -l, -l+1, …0,… l-1, l

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
