electrons push each other away, more electrons means more pushing each other way until they shape the orbitals, more orbitals means more chances for nodal planes to exist between them

there aren't enough electrons that exist within that orbital to form nodes in which case a plane would form, electrons can exist wherever they want within the spherical s orbital
