We"re asked todetermine which set of quantum numbers cannot occur togethertospecify an orbital.

You are watching: Which set of quantum numbers cannot specify an orbital?

To solve this problem, let’s first define the values of the first three quantum numbers:

principal quantum number (n)energy level in orbitals and its value could beany positive integerstarting from 1 to infinity

angular momentum quantum number ()(l) has to be at least 1 less than n,range of values from0 up to (n-1)

magnetic quantum number (m)range of values from -ℓ to +ℓ.
