What are the four quantum numbers and give a brief description of what they indicate?
 1) The principal quantum number (n) indicates size of the orbital. (1, 2, 3, etc.)
 2) The angular quantum number (l) is related to the shape of the orbital. (from 0 to n1)
 3) The magnetic quantum number (m_{l}) prescribes the orientation of the orbital. (l through 0 to l)
 4) The electronspin quantum number (m_{s}) describes the spin of the electron itself, not the orbital. (1/2 or +1/2)
