## Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm sitting with Physics Handbook and I'm trying to recall how the make out the orbitals in the energy levels. Lets take a look at the first levels.

Number of electrons = [itex]2n^2 \Rightarrow 2[/itex] electrons.

Number of electrons = [itex]l = 0,1... n-1 \Rightarrow l = 0[/itex].

This is where I get stuck. I can't remember how to get the orbitals; s, p, d etc...

Edit, is n = 0 & l = 0 written as 1s?

**n = 1**- sub-shell KNumber of electrons = [itex]2n^2 \Rightarrow 2[/itex] electrons.

Number of electrons = [itex]l = 0,1... n-1 \Rightarrow l = 0[/itex].
