In an atom, the maximum number of electrons having the quantum numbers n=5 and §¤ = 3 is:
1. 9.
2. 14.
3. 50.
4. 25.
5. 7.

Shouldn't the maximum number be a lot bigger than the answer choices?

    That weird symbol was supposed to be quantum number l.

    Thanks for the explanation of the weird symbol. If "ell" is 3, that is an f electron and there can be 14 f electrons.
    (2s, 6p, 10d, 14f etc).
