The Magnetic Quantum Number gives the location of an electron within a specific orbital.

###### Magnetic Quantum Number

Concept #1: Magnetic Quantum Number

Example #1: Provide the identity of a set of orbitals that exist in the 4th principal level and f sublevel

Concept #2: The Magnetic Quantum Number (ml)

Example #2: Which of the following is not a valid magnetic quantum number for the 7f set of orbitals?

Practice: How many different values of ml are possible for a 4d set of orbitals?

Practice: Select a correct set of values for an electron found within the designated 5f orbital. Practice: Which of the following statements is false?

a) A set of d orbitals contains 5 orbitals.

b) A set of 4s orbitals would have more energy than a set of 3p orbitals.

c) The second shell of an atom possesses d orbitals.

d) A set of f orbitals contains 3 orbitals.

e) The first energy level contains only s orbitals.
