(a) How many sub-

Answer :

(a) n = 4 [Given]

For a given value of ‘n’, ‘L’ can have values from zero to [n-1].


L = 0, 1, 2, 3


Thus, four sub-shells are associated with n = 4, which are s, p, d and f.


(b) Number of orbitals in the nth shell = n2


For n = 4


Number of orbitals = 16


Each orbital has one electron with ms = -1/2


Hence there will be 16 electrons with ms = -1/2
