Will we be expected to know the shapes and models of orbitals for the midterm? Will a general understanding suffice? I still have trouble envisioning orbital structures in a 3D space just because I've never dealt with the Z-axis before.
You probably only have to know the basics of the shapes of the orbitals, like how s-orbitals are a sphere, p-orbitals are like dumbbells, and so on. Also the number of nodes for each type of orbital. I'm pretty sure we don't need to know about f-orbitals though.
