Lacey, Stony Brook University; Che 131, Fall 2011 1 Quantum numbers Solution leads to orbitals The shape, phase & electron occupancy are described by four quantum numbers n, l, m l , m s Quantum numbers are related to each other Quantum numbers are related to each other Roy A. Lacey, Stony Brook University; Che 131, Fall 2011 2 Solutions to the wave equation Solutions are characterized by quantum numbers ` The principle quantum number, n , is a positive integer that indicates the shell and relative size of orbital(s) Solutions are characterized by quantum numbers orbital(s). ` The angular momentum quantum number, l , is an integer from zero to n1. It defines the shape of the orbital and subshell. V a l u e o f l 1 2 3 4 Letter identifier s p d f g ` The magnetic quantum number, m l , is an integer with a value from l to +l. It defines the orientation of an orbital in the space around the nucleus of an atom orbital in the space around the nucleus of an atom. ` The spin magnetic quantum number, m s , is to account for the two possible spin orientations. The values for m are +1/2 and 1/2 Roy A. Lacey, Stony Brook University; Che 131, Fall 2011 3 m s are +1/2 and 1/2.
