I'm supposed to find the quantum numbers for a 5py orbital. I'm not sure how to do this, can anyone help?

N=5
l = 4 3 2 1 0, for p you want l = 1
ml= -1 0 +1 representing px, py, and pz orbitals.
ms= +1/2 and -1/2.
Look at a diagram in your book for the px, py, and pz orbitals and choose the one you want. Then choose either of the +1/2 or -1/2 you want.

got it, I remember going through that now, just didn't know where to start. thanks.
