Hello all-(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am working to calculate the value of I_{3}for Li. I am working through the formula:

Z^{2}hR/n^{2}

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

Thanks in advance.
