what does the orbital structure look like for f-orbitals?

F-orbitals have more complicated shapes, meaning that there are more lobes. Having more lobes means that there is a more complicated shape in regards to displaying itself on a plane.

I don't think you have to worry about the f-orbitals for now. They are more complicated in shape. Just be familiar with s, p and d.

f-orbitals are some of the most complex graphs and we don't need to how to graph them as of now.
