### d Orbital

Will we need to know how to draw d orbitals and know their shapes? I know that we need to know this for the s and p orbitals but I was wondering what exactly we need to focus on for the d orbitals.

I don't think we'll need to know how to draw the d orbital because it's complex compared to s and p

I think as long as you can recognize them, and understand the concept of hybrid d-orbitals you should be good!

I don't think we will need to draw them, but it might be a good idea to look over what they look like.

Lavelle said we wouldn't need to draw them but it is probably recommended that you know the shapes

We do work with d orbitals, but I believe that we do not have to know how to draw out complex d orbitals for this class!

You don't need to know the exact shape but remember identifying generalities
