    N = principle quantum number, tells you your energy level. L = shape that's the way I think of L m = can be less than or equal to L, shows how many orientations the orbitals can have. Can't be greater than L S = spin can either be +1/2 or -1/2 don't remember exactly. Say if we have 2P P orbitals have 3 possible orientations, Px,Py,Pz L = 1 M = +1 -1 0 corresponding to the Px,Py,Pz You can have spin up or down

    If we have l = 2 That means we can have -2, -1, 0, 1, 2 which is five orientations Two electrons for each orbital so that's 10 total. That would give us a D orbital. a D orbital would have l = 2 and would start at principle quantum number of 3

    You know that the spin can either be +1/2 or -1/2 so that won't tell you which one is right. So based off of what I said can you predict what the answer would be?
