1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An atom is in the state 42F.

Write down the values of n,l,s and j.


2. Relevant equations





3. The attempt at a solution

n=4
l=3

I'm having problems with s and j. I know j=l+s, does one have to take parity into account?

I'm not even sure that the 2 I attempted are correct.

If someone could just tell me the method of working out the different quantum numbers when given a state such as above it would help me a lot.

Any help would be appreciated thanks!
