G orbital

Postby Victoria Zheng--2F » Thu Oct 17, 2019 5:36 pm

I don't quite know where the g orbital fits in the periodic table and what do we need to know about the g orbital?

I don't think the G orbital is portrayed in the periodic table at all, I'm pretty sure the periodic table only goes up to f, and I believe Dr. Lavelle told us we don't need to know about the G orbital anyways as well, probably just that it exists.

The g orbital, I believe, is thought of more as a possibility that may occur if the electron reaches a state in which n is large (larger than we've seen so far). As Angie stated, I too think that the periodic table does not display g orbital, but only s, p, d, and f. I think we should know about the existence, but not in depth.

It is possible that n can be larger and so that g orbital could exist, but since the electrons are so far away from the nucleus, the elements will be extremely unstable and will probably not exist under normal conditions. I don’t think we need to know that for the this class since it’s not even on the periodic table.

I believe it is probably best to know of the G-orbital and have a basic knowledge of it's features and such. However, I don't think you need to be an expert on this topic. Just know it exists.

The G orbital does exist, but in their ground state, electrons are not in the G orbital, so it is therefore not represented on the periodic table.

Thank you for saying this. I had never heard of the G orbital before
