Homework Help: Physics please explain

Posted by Mary on Friday, December 14, 2007 at 1:33am.

In the quantum mechanical picture of the hydrogen atom, the orbital angular momentum of the electron may be zero in any of the possible energy states. For which energy state must the orbital angular momentum be zero?
n = 1
n = 2
n = 3
n = 4
Give your reasoning.

I am not sure about this one but I think the answer is 2 but I am unsure why. Please explain.
