Homework Statement


The solution of the Schrodinger equation for atom depends on four quantum numbers: the principal n, the orbital l, magnetic m1, and the spin Ms
n = 1, 2, 3, 4, ... (integers)
l = 0, 1, 2, ... (n-1)
m1 = -1, -1+1,...0...1-1, 1
Ms = -1/2, 1/2
List all possible values of n, l, m1, and ms for n= 0,1,2

Begin with n=0. What are then the possible values for the other 3 quantum numbers ? Then the same question for n=1, etc.

EDIT: Sorry, n=1, of course. :D So n=1, what's l equal to ?

How is this in advanced physics?

Moderator's note: I have moved this thread to Introductory Physics. In the future, please post questions of this level in Introductory Physics.

By the way, there is a problem with n=0. I would start with n=1 instead.
