(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

What is the angular momentum of a hydrogen atom in (a) a 4p state and (b) a 5f state? Give your answers as a multiple of h-bar aka (h/2*pi)

2. Relevant equations

Radius of nth orbit = 5.29*10-11 * n^2

Angular Momentum = mvr

V of nth orbit = sqrt ( e^2 / (4*pi*epsilon_0*m*r) )

3. The attempt at a solution

For 4p orbit i plugged in 4 to the equations and got angular momentum is equal to 4 h-bar,

not right however....

Thanks,

David
