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.

  • chemistry -

    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).
