Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello all-

I am working to calculate the value of I3 for Li. I am working through the formula:

Z2hR/n2

Can anyone tell me what n is equal to? I had originally set n=3 since I am looking for I3, but it was marked incorrect as n should have been set at 1. I'm not sure why in this case

Thanks in advance.
