science physics# What values of ML are possible for L 1?

Last Updated: 20th February, 2020

**possible values of ml**are -

**1**,0 and +

**1**because the range of

**values**are from-

**l**to +

**l**.

Simply so, what are the possible values of ML for a Subshell with L 1?

3. Magnetic Quantum Number (**ml**): **ml** =-**l**, , 0, , +**l**. Specifies the orientation in space ofan orbital of a given energy (n) and shape (**l**). This numberdivides the **subshell** into individual orbitals which hold theelectrons; there are 2l+**1** orbitals in each**subshell**.

Secondly, what is the quantum number L? The principal **quantum number** therefore indirectlydescribes the energy of an orbital. The angular **quantumnumber** (**l**) describes the shape of the orbital. Orbitalshave shapes that are best described as spherical (**l** = 0),polar (**l** = 1), or cloverleaf (**l** = 2).

Regarding this, how many values of ML are there for an L value of 3?

The s orbital, because the **value** of **ml** canonly be 0, can only exist **in** one plane. The p orbital,however, has three possible **values of ml** and so it has threepossible orientations of the orbitals, shown by Px, Py, andPz.

What is the value of the angular momentum quantum number L?

The **angular momentum quantum number**, signified as(**l**), describes the general shape or region an electronoccupies—its orbital shape. The **value** of **l**depends on the **value** of the principle **quantum number**n. The **angular momentum quantum number** can have positive**values** of zero to (n − 1).
