Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Jordan on Wednesday, November 12, 2008 at 9:05pm.

Suppose you live in a different universe where different amount of quantum numbers is required to describe the atomic orbitals. These quantum numbers have the following rules:
N principal 1,2,3,.
L orbital =N
M magnetic -1. 0. +1
How many orbitals are there all together in the first electron shell?

I know that the number of orbitals in a subshell is 2L + 1, but, Im stuck after that.

Is a subshell the same as the orbitals in the first electron shell? Please explain if possible!
