What Is An Atomic Orbital?
The 1s, 2s and 3s Orbitals
The 2p and 3p Orbitals
The 3d Orbitals
What Is A Hybrid Orbital?
The sp, sp2 and sp3
The sp, sp2 and sp3 Hybrid Orbitals
|due to the size of the orbital files, it may
take several seconds for the orbitals to appear,|
|only the total electron density is shown for each orbital (i.e., the phases for
each orbital are not shown), and|
|when a hybrid orbital is depicted in a textbook, the shape of the orbital is often
exaggerated (elongated) to illustrate the directionality of the orbital along a particular
axis, or within a particular plane.|
