12. (a) For n = 3 there are 3 possible values of l :0 , 1 , a n d 2 . (b) We interpret this as asking for the number of distinct values for m l (this ignores the multiplicity of any particular value). For each l there are 2 l +1 possible values of m l . Thus the number of possible m 0 l sfor l =2is(2 l + 1) = 5. Examining the l =1and

Unformatted text preview: n , l and m l , for an electron there are always two possible values of m s : ± 1 2 . (d) The population in the n = 3 shell is equal to the number of electron states in the shell, or 2 n 2 = 2(3 2 ) = 18. (e) Each subshell has its own value of l . Since there are three di±erent values of l for n = 3, there are three subshells in the n = 3 shell....
