p-orbitals

Postby Netpheel Wang 4L » Sun Oct 21, 2018 1:11 am

Does anyone know if there is a max to the p-orbital (3p, 5p, etc) and up to which one will be relevant for life sciences?

I believe when it comes to the elements on the periodic table, the orbitals go up to 5p even though energy levels can hypothetically reach up to infinity. I think whatever's on the periodic table will be relevant for life science majors.
