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) orbital(s). ` The angular momentum quantum number, l , is an integer from zero to n-1. It defines the shape of the orbital and subshell. Value of l 0 1 2 3 4 Letter identifier s p df 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.

Shapes of orbitals ` Psi squared, \ 2 , defines the space, called an orbital, in an atom where the probability of finding an electron is high electron is high. ` A radial distribution plot is a graphical representation of the probability of finding an electron in a thin spherical layer near the nucleus of electron in a thin spherical layer near the nucleus of an atom.
