Shapes of orbitals

Postby Isabella Barkett 1G » Sun May 06, 2018 3:36 pm

Will we need to know the shapes of the different orbitals? ie how p is a dumbbell shape or s is spherically shaped?

I don't think so. I hope not.

As far as I know, you don't need to know the specific orbital shapes for the midterm.

No we will not be required to know how to draw the orbitals however, I do believe we have to how to distinguish between them

I don't think we will need to draw them on the test, however, I would be familiar with them just in case and to help understand the concept.

I dont think that we need to know it, but i think it will be useful to understand the concept behind the orbitals for the midterm.

No I don't think you will need to know the shape of every orbital but I would go over them just in case since they will come into play later in the class.
