Degenerate orbitals

Postby Nikki Bych 1I » Thu Oct 25, 2018 9:15 pm

In the book the only degenerate orbitals are one-electron atoms only, but the internet explains it as something different. Is the book's description accurate??

The book also says that the three p-orbitals in a shell are degenerate both in hydrogen and in many-electron atoms, so I'm sure that the book is correct.
