Q:

What is the quantum number of azimuthal?

A:

Quick Answer

Azimuthal does not have a specific quantum number; it is the name of the four quantum numbers. The azimuthal quantum number is affiliated with the angular momentum of an atomic electron.

Full Answer

A quantum number depends on the sublevel of an electron; the sublevels are s, p, d and f. The sublevel s has an azimuthal quantum number of zero, while the sublevels p, d and f have the numbers one, two, and three respectively. The next sublevels are in alphabetical order after f, and each is one quantum number larger than the letter before it. The shape of the electron orbital is determined by the azimuthal quantum number. Higher azimuthal quantum numbers mean higher orbital energies.

  • Q:

    What do quantum numbers describe?

    A:

    Quantum numbers describe the pathway, movement and designated orbitals of electrons in atoms. There are a total of four quantum numbers whose values describe the characteristics of the electrons in an atom and help to determine factors such as an element's atomic radius and ionization energy. The four quantum number values describe in detail the traits of an electron based on its spin, orbital, subshell and level.
