Video Transcript

four different quantum numbers are used in quantum mechanics. He described the orbital's found in an Adam ER, where the electron orbital's are within an atom. The first of those quantum numbers is called the principal choir member, represented by and the principal climb number, basically or an describes both the overall size and energy oven orbital. It can range in numbers from 1 to 6. So, for example, hydrogen and helium both have a bond number of one. Caesium, which is one of the larger Adams on the periodic table, has a quantum number of six, so hydrogen and helium both have orbital's only one orbital, where a caesium has orbital's all the way out to six.
