Subshells/Orbitals

Postby Layal Suboh 1I » Wed Oct 24, 2018 10:32 pm

Hi,

I know that the p subshell has 2px, 2py, and 2pz orbitals, what specific orbitals would the f subshell have?

Thanks!

Although I'm not entirely sure which SPECIFIC orbitals the f subshell would have, I do know that it should have 7 orbitals.
(s=1 orbital, p=3 orbitals, d=5 orbitals, f=7 orbitals)

I don't think we need to know the specific shapes of the f orbitals, we just need to know that it has 7 different orbitals which hold a total of 14 electrons.

I think we just have to know the general idea of what the f-orbital entails, not the specifics of it.

Here's an image of the f-orbitals. As previously mentioned I don't think you'll need to know what they are, just know that they have 7.

How do you know which element the electron configuration is, if it is written as x,y, and z?
