Assume we move to a 2 dimensional world, where the periodic table is based on 3 quantum numbers,
m*= -(n-1).. -2,-1 ,0 ,1 ,2, ..(n-1)
s = +0.5 or -0.5
Such that m* plays the combined role of both m and l (3-D quantum numbers)
Assume that in this 2-D world, chemical and physical experience from our world is applicable.
Knowing this, in the 2-D world how does the octet rule and the pseudo-octet rule change?
If the number electrons to complete the new rule and new pseudo-rule are n and m respectively,
What is the value of n+m =
(Based of an IChO question)
