Unformatted text preview: allowed values of l are 0 and 1. Problem: List all possible values of the magnetic quantum number m 1 for a 3p electron. You're told an electron in an atom is a 3p electron. That means the electron is in a quantum state with n=3 and l=1 In general the allowed values of m 1 are 2l+1 integers between l and +l So if l=1, the allowed values of m 1 are 3 1,0, and 1...
