## What is the maximum number of electrons that can be associated with the following set of quantum number?

The given sets of quantum numbers represents one 3d orbital. An orbital can have maximum 2 electrons.

**What is the maximum number of electrons that can be associated with N 3 L 1’m =- 1?**

2 electrons

The orbital associated with n = 3, l = 1 is 3p. One orbital (with m = -1) of 3p-subshell can accomodate maximum 2 electrons.

**What is the maximum number of electrons that can be associated with the following set of quantum number n is equals to 3 L is equals to 1 and M is equals to minus one?**

So, n=3 and l = 1 indicates electrons are present in the 3p subshell. The p subshell has a maximum of 3 orbitals and each orbital contains a maximum of 2 electrons. Hence, the correct option is (D) 6.

### What is the maximum number of electrons that can be present in an atom in which the highest principal Qn is 4?

32

The maximum number of electrons present in an atom whose highest principal quantum no. is 4 is 32 How?

**What is the maximum number of electrons in n 3 L 3?**

Table of Allowed Quantum Numbers

n | l | Number of electrons |
---|---|---|

3 | 0 | 2 |

1 | 6 | |

2 | 10 | |

4 | 0 | 2 |

**What is the maximum value of l for N 4?**

ANSWER: The maximum value of ‘l’ for n=4 is l=3. i.e, l’s range is 0 to (n-1).

## What is the maximum number of electrons that can be identified with the following set of quantum numbers n 4 L 1?

When l = 4, this tells you it is a ‘g sub shell’. Thus, there will be a total of 18 electrons. When l = 1, this tells you it is a ‘p sub shell’, and ml can be -1, 0, or +1.

**What is a maximum number?**

The maximum is a unique number for a given set of data. This number can be repeated, but there is only one maximum for a data set. There cannot be two maxima because one of these values would be greater than the other.

**What is the maximum number of electron that can be present in 4p orbital?**

6 electrons

Hint:The 4p orbital is the sub level of the 4p subshell. The filling of electrons in the orbital follows Pauli exclusion principle. The total electrons a p orbital can hold is 6 electrons.
