# What are the quantum numbers necessary to specify a #5p# subshell?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

As you know, quantum numbers are sused to describe the exact location and spin an electron can have in an atom.

A total of **unique** set of quantum numbers associated with its position ans spin.

Now, the *principal equantum number*, **energy level** on which you can find an electron.

Each *energy level* contains a specific number of **subshells**, given the *possible values* the *angular momentum quantum number*,

For example, the second energy level is characterized by

This means that the second energy level will have a total of **subshells**.

In your case, the energy level is given by the number that's placed in front of the letter **p**, which denotes a specific subshell.

So, the principal quantum number, **5p-subshell** is

Now, the any **p-subshell** is characterized by **s-subshell** is characterized by **d-subshell** by

Therefore, the value of angula momentum quantum number will be
