Nodal planes are where there are no electrons found. This ultimately means that there is no electron density distribution in these parts for a certain shape. There are s, p, d, and f atomic orbitals that exist, but s is the only atomic orbital where there's no nodal plane. However, p contains 1 nodal plane and so forth for the other orbitals. S orbital is the only one that is shaped like a sphere, while the others are shaped with sets of lobes.
