For many reasons it is important to understand the basic level-structure of atomi
The Periodic Table
(See Shankar pp.369-371, Griffiths sect. 5.2.2)
Understanding the periodic table is one fo the triumphs of QM. Recall that
for hydrogen, the electron energy eigenstates are |n,l,m>, where
n=1,2,3,
l=0,1,n-1
m=-I, ,0,l
n=principal quantu
