If ever, when will we use f orbitals? Examples?

Yeah we don't have to worry about those for now. The other 3 are though (s, p, d) (sphere, propeller, daisy)

Even though we do not need to know how to use f orbitals at all in Chem 14A, they would be used for high energy levels. At the fourth and other levels that are higher, there are seven f orbitals in addition to the 4s, 4p, and 4d orbitals.
An example may be Eu, Europium, whose electron configuration would look like: [Xe] 4f^7 6s^2.
