what are the values of principal quantam number(n)and azzimuthal quantam number (l) for 3s and 4p orbitals?

Expert Answer:

Principal quantum number (n): It defines the main shell to which an electron belongs.
3s orbital n=3
4p orbital n = 4
If n = the principal quantum number, then one value lower than n is the azimuthal quantum number (n-1).

3s orbital
Azimuthal quantum number l = 3-1 =2
4p orbital n = 4
Azimuthal quantum number l = 4-1 =3
