What are the quantum numbers for the element Ni?

1 Answer

3, 2, 0, -1/2


The quantum numbers for Ni (electron #28) are:

Principal = 3 (because the electron is in energy level 3)
Angular = 2 (because the electron is in a d sublevel)
Magnetic = 0 (because the electron is in the middle orbital of the 5 orbitals in the 3d sublevel)
Spin = -1/2 (because the electron is down spin()
