## Step 1: The given data

There are different electronic configuration statements that need to be verified.

## Step 2: Understanding the concept of the electronic configuration

The electronic configuration with the principal quantum number, n, has an orbital angular quantum number in the range of 0 to n-1 integer values.

In contrast, the range of magnetic angular quantum number ranges from -l to +l. The number of sub-shells is equal to the principal quantum number.

## Step 3: a) Calculation of not possible state configuration

From any principal quantum number, we can get the number of the sub-shells in that electronic configuration that is s, p, d, and f.

So, here the state is not possible as the orbital quantum number of this state is l = 1(for p) . This is equal to the principal quantum number (n = 1), which is impossible.

Hence, this statement is true.

## Step 4: b) Calculation of the dependence of the magnetic quantum number

The value of magnetic quantum number ${m}_{l}$ ranges from -l to +l . Thus, it depends on the value of l , not on the value of n .

Hence, this statement is true

## Step 5: c) Calculation of the number of sub shells for n = 4

The number of sub-shells of an orbital is equal to the principal number.

Thus, the number of sub shells for n = 4 is 4.

Hence, this statement is true.

## Step 6: d) Calculation of the smallest value of n

We know that the values of orbital quantum numbers l range from 0 to (n-1).

Thus, here the smallest value of for any value of is given by:

l = n -1

n = l + 1

Hence, this statement is true.

## Step 7: e) Calculation of the values of magnetic quantum number for l = 0

We know that the values of magnetic quantum number for any value of range from -l to +l . Thus, for the value l = 0 , the only value of ${m}_{l}$ is ${m}_{l}=0$ .

Hence, this statement is true.

## Step 8: f) Calculation of the number of sub shells for n

From the concept, we can say that the number of sub-shells of an orbital is equal to its principal quantum number n .

Hence, this statement is true. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
