What is the total number of orbitals associated with the principal quantum number n = 5?

  • Chemistry -

    N=5
    l = from zero, in integers, to n-1.
    msubl = -ell to + ell.
    msubs = +1/2 and -1/2 for each ell listed.
    So the total number of orbitals with n=5 will be 2*number of ell values.
