    Do you not have any resource to work from or a textbook? Usually you have to offer some attempt at the solution.

    the answer is

    L = [tex]\sqrt{6h}[/tex]

    Lz = -2h, -h, h or 2h

    but I dont know its solution.

    Ask yourself, what do the 3 and d mean for a 3d state, what are the values of l and n for a 3d state of H?
