Azimuthal Quantum Numbers (ℓ)

The azimuthal quantum number is a quantum number for an atomic orbital that determines its orbital angular momentum and describes the shape of the orbital.

Every azimuthal number has his own capacity of electrons

  • S(v=0) ==> 1 orb ==> 2 electrons
  • P(v=1) ==> 3 orbs ==> 6 electrons
  • D(v=2) ==> 5 orbs ==> 10 electrons
  • F(v=3) ==> 10 orbs ==>12 electrons

Ps:open the photo to see the whole image. ((v = value))

Spin Quantum Numbers (ms)

describe the angular momentum of an electron. An electron spins around an axis and has both angular momentum and orbital angular momentum. Because angular momentum is a vector, the Spin Quantum Number (s) has both a magnitude (½) and direction (+ or -)
