1 a) Principal quantum number, n, relates to the size of the orbital. More specifically, it relates to the distance from the nucleus at which the probability of finding an electron is greatest. This distance is determined by the energy of the electron 2 b) Angular momentum quantum number, l, relates to the shape of the orbital. It is also called the azimuthal quantum number. 3 c) Magnetic quantum number, ml, relates to the orientation of the orbital in space in three-dimensional space.
