Homework Help: Creating periodic table w/ quantum numbers

  1. Sep 19, 2006 #1
    Hello all. I have a quantum number question that is completely stumping me.

    "In another universe, the quantum number ml = 0, 1, 2, ... + 1. That is, the values of ml are positive integers, to a maximum value of +l. All other allowed values are unchanged, so the set of allowed values is:
    n: 1,2,3...
    l: 0, 1, 2,... (n-1)
    ml: 0, 1, 2... +l
    ms = -1/2, +1/2

    Design the periodic table for the first 30 elements."

    I know that since all the ml values are only postive now, that restricts the number of orbitals allowed per energy level. However, I simply cannot get the table to work. I was wondering if anyone could give me any tips. Thank you!
