Indicate which of the following quantum numbers are unacceptable:

(a)(1,2,0,1/2) (b) (3,2,0,1/2) (c)(3,2,2,1) (d) (4,3,2,-1/2)

  • Chemistry -

    a and c are not acceptable.
    a. n = 1
    l can be 0 and only 0 which makes 2 no go.
    c. n = 3
    l can be 0, 1, or 2 which is ok at 2
    ml can be -2,-1,0,1,2 so 2 is ok.
    ms can be +1/2 or -1/2 so 1 is not ok.
