What type(s) of electron subshell(s) does an L-shell (n = 2) contain? A. d B. p C. f D. s E. s & p F s & d
The reaction between n (principal quantum number) and L (azimuthal quantum number) is for given n value L can be from 0 to n-1 . For n=2,Lhas two values, that is, 0 and 1. For 0, s notation is used and for 1, p notation is used. For n 2, L contains two subshells, that is, s and p Therefore, the correct option is E.
