- Homework Statement:
- State possible quantum states of electron relaxing from n=4 to n=3 in the order of n,l

- Relevant Equations:
- -

Hi all,

I'm right now confused about this.

As far as I know, when changing from a level to another, the change in l (subshell) can only be a difference of 1, and ##m_{l}## can be the same or a difference of 1.

In this case, since the question wants me to state possible quantum states of electron relaxing from n=4 to n=3 in the order of n,l,

is the answer simply just 3,2 / 3,1 / 3,0 ?

Cheers
