Solution :-

(a) n = 4 (Given)

For some value of ‘n’, the values of ‘l’ range from 0 to (n – 1).

Here, the possible values of l are 0, 1, 2, and 3

Therefore, a total of 4 subshells are possible when n=4: the s, p, d and f subshells.

(b) No. orbitals in the nth shell = n2

For n = 4

Therefore, the total no. orbitals when n = 4 is 16

If each orbital fully occupied, each orbital will have 1 electron with ms value of \( -\dfrac{1}{2}\).

Therefore, total no. electrons with an ms value of \( (-\dfrac{1}{2})\) is 16.

The quantum numbers of six electrons are given below. Arrange them in order of increasing energies. If any of these combination(s) has/have the same energy lists:

1. n = 4, l = 2, \( m_l\) = –2 , ms = \( -\dfrac{1}{2}\)

2. n = 3, l = 2, \( m_l\)= 1 , ms = \( +\dfrac{1}{2}\)

3. n = 4, l = 1, \( m_l\) = 0 , ms = \( +\dfrac{1}{2}\)

4. n = 3, l = 2, \( m_l\)= –2 , ms = \( -\dfrac{1}{2}\)

5. n = 3, l = 1, \( m_l\) = –1 , ms= \( +\dfrac{1}{2}\)

6. n = 4, l = 1, \( m_l\) = 0 , ms = \( +\dfrac{1}{2}\)
