Q: Given below are the sets of quantum numbers for given orbitals. Name these orbitals.

(i) n = 2, l = 1, m = –1

(ii) n = 4, l = 2, m = 0

(iii) n = 3, l = 1, m = ± 1

(iv) n = 4, l = 0, m = 0

(v) n = 3, l = 2, m = ± 2

Solution: (i) 2px or 2py

(ii) 4dz2

(iii) 3px or 3py

(iv) 4s

(v) 3dx2y2 or 3 dxy
