For the s orbital, it only exists on an actual axis, but for the p and d orbitals, they can exist on planes that are on the z-axis? I just need a clearer explanation to distinguish the different between an orbital on an axis vs. an orbital on a plane.
If you read the way Dr. Lavelle described the different orbitals, it will either say along an axis or in a plane. There were just slight differences in the phrasing, but if you wrote down what was projected during the lecture, the differences are in there.
