See explanation.


The quantum numbers associated to the following orbitals are:

#2p: n=2, l=1, m_l=-1, 0, +1, m_s=-1/2 or +1/2#

#3s: n=3, l=0, m_l=0, m_s=-1/2 or +1/2#

#5d: n=5, l=2, m_l=-2, -1, 0, +1, +2, m_s=-1/2 or +1/2#

You can refer to the following tables to associate quantum numbers to other orbitals:
