Test Question

Postby Samantha Burmester 3H » Sun Oct 21, 2018 4:26 pm

Are we required to know the shapes of the different orbitals?

I think Lavelle wants us to know what the orbitals would look like and understand the differences but I don’t think it is required, and he said he would not make us draw any orbitals.

We dont need to draw them but know what each represents.

We're probably expected to understand electron configuration and how orbitals are structured in order to name the state of an electron

It is useful to conceptually understand the shapes of the orbitals however for the test itself you will not need to draw them.

I don't think we're required to know the shapes for this upcoming test specifically, but for the midterm and final understanding the idea behind it and concepts like the probability of finding an electron will probably be important

It's good to know them for context and conceptual understanding, but we don't have to know how to draw them.

I do not believe he will ask us to memorize the shapes but we should understand them

I believe that we do not have to draw the shapes, but we do have to be able to recognize and identify them.
