How many electrons can have #n = 3#, #l = 2#, #m_l = 2#, #m_s = -1/2#?
Only one electron in a given atom can have the set of quantum numbers given in the question.
No two electrons in an atom can have the same set of quantum numbers.
The first quantum number is the principle quantum number , which is
The second quantum number, the angular momentum , is
The third quantum number, the magnetic quantum number ,
Lastly, we have the spin quantum number ,
Each electron in an atom has a unique set of quantum numbers.
The given quantum numbers for the electron in the question tell us that there is a high probability that the electron is in one of the
