What do you mean by, "excite only one direction of movement". I don't understand.

Also, note that in general, the energy in a spherically symmetric potential V(r) can depend on the angular quantum numbers l and m. Only for the special cases when the potential is of the form 1/r or r^2, does the energy depend exclusively on the radial quantum number n.

Try an example -- say a spherical well.
