Homework Statement


Find all permitted J values for electronic configuration 2p3/22

Homework Equations



Clebsch-Gordan coefficients maybe ?

The Attempt at a Solution



Maybe from this ?

J = L+S,L+S-1,...,|L-S|

Then I first have to find L and S, and just put them in above equation ?

Any Hints ?

No need for C-G coefficients, just read what the spectroscopic symbol means: what do 2, p, 3/2, 2 stand for ?

Indeed J = L+S,L+S-1,...,|L-S| is useful.

2 stands for principal quantum number n, p is orbital number l, 3/2 stands for j and the 2 is for two electrons. But I'm not sure about all.

(I have a lot of work these days, so my responses are delayed)
