Set of quantum number represent highest energy

Question

Which of the following set of quantum number will represent the highest energy of an atom?

(a) n = 3, l = 2, m = 1, s = +1/2

(a) n = 3, l = 2, m = 1, s = -1/2

(a) n = 4, l = 0, m = 0, s = +1/2

(a) n = 3, l = 2, m = 0, s = +1/2

Answer ( 1 )

  1. Here, n+l is maximum i.e. 5 in option  1 and 2.

    Now, the Positive spin will have more energy than negative spin.

    So, option 1 will be the correct choice.
