Dear Ramakrishna,

principal quantum number n shell 1 ≤ n n = 1, 2, 3, …
azimuthal quantum number (angular momentum) l subshell (s orbital is listed as 0, p orbital as 1 etc.) 0 ≤ l ≤ n − 1 for n = 3:
l = 0, 1, 2 (s, p, d)
magnetic quantum number, (projection of angular momentum) ml energy shift (orientation of the subshell's shape) l ≤ ml ≤ l for l = 2:
ml = −2, −1, 0, 1, 2
spin projection quantum number ms spin of the electron (−½ = counter-clockwise, ½ = clockwise) −½, ½ for an electron, either: −½, ½

Best Of Luck...!!!!
