Allowed Sets of Quantum Numbers

CHEM-01NXTV

Consider each of the following sets of quantum numbers. One of these sets is invalid because it violates the rules set forth for determining the allowable values for quantum numbers.

Determine which of the following sets has an INVALID set of numbers.

A

$n = 2, l = 1, { m }_{ l } = -1, { m }_{ s } = -\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 }$

B

$n=2,l=1,{ m }_{ l }=0,{ m }_{ s }=-\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 } $

C

$n=3,l=0,{ m }_{ l }=0,{ m }_{ s }=+\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 } $

D

$n=3,l=2,{ m }_{ l }=3,{ m }_{ s }=+\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 }$
