Why is there no 1p?

Okay, that's a chemistry question, but oh well. It's probably also invalid... :S I have a year 12 level understanding...

What is "1p"?

I'm meaning in the structure of the atom, and electron energy levels. There's no 1p, and no 2d and so on :S

"...classical orbital names (s, p, d, f) are derived from the characteristics of their spectroscopic lines: sharp, principal, diffuse, and fundamental..."

Ah well there you go. Thanks :D My chem teacher didn't mention that...

there is no 1p because in the first orbit , a maximum of 2 electrons can be filled , which can be filled in the 1s orbital . hence there is no need for a 1p orbital.
