What is the angular momentum of an electron in the third orbit of an atom?

We know that,

Angular momentum of an electron in the nth Bohr orbit of hydrogen atom $L = \frac{nh}{2\pi}$

For n = 3; h = 6.6 x 10-34 Js

$L = \frac{3h}{2\pi}$

$L = \frac{3 \times 6.6 \times 10^-34}{2 \times 3.14}$ = 3.15 x 10-34 Js
