Degeneracy of the s orbital

Postby Nathan Mariano 2G » Sun Dec 09, 2018 1:07 am

Does the s orbital have any degeneracies? The internet says that it does not, but I have heard that it has a degeneracy as one. Degeneracy is defined as orbitals with the same energy. However, the s orbital does not have another orbital with the same energy.

No, the s orbital does not have a degeneracy.
