#### Question

What is the lowest value of *n* that allows g orbitals to exist?

#### Solution

For g-orbitals, *l *= 4.

As for any value ‘*n*’ of principal quantum number, the Azimuthal quantum number (*l*) can have a value from zero to (*n* – 1).

∴ For *l* = 4, minimum value of *n* = 5

Is there an error in this question or solution?
