(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. List all the possible values of total angular momentum for the following

1.^{3}P

2.^{2}D

2. Relevant equations

j = s + l

3. The attempt at a solution

is this problem as simple as, for 1.

for 3p, n = 3, l = 0,1,2

since it's a p orbital, l = 1

thus j = l + s, all possible values are 3/2, and 1/2

but for 2d, i just dont know... is this theoretical? there are no d orbitals at the n = 2 level right? or am i misinterpretting the symbols?
