what is azimuthal quantum number?
Asked by isha007 | 22nd Aug, 2010, 12:00: AM
The Azimuthal quantum number is a quantum number for an atomic orbital that determines its orbital angular momentum.
n = 2 l = 0,1 there are two sub shells- 2s, 2pn = 3 l = 0,1,2 there are three sub shells -3s, 3p and 3d
n =4 l = 0,1,2,3 there are four sub shells 4s, 4p, 4d and 4fThus for each value of 'n' there are 'n' values of 'l'.
