## Nodal Planes

$H_{\psi }=E_{\psi }$

1-D: $E_{TOTAL}\psi (x)=E_{k}\psi (x)+V(x)\psi(x)=-\frac{h^{2}}{8\pi ^{2}m}\frac{d^{2}\psi(x)}{dx^{2}}+V(x)\psi(x)$

f orbitals have 3 nodal planes and I think the number of nodal planes an orbital has is equal to its angular momentum quantum number, such that s orbital has no nodal plane; p orbitals have 1; d orbitals have 2 and f orbitals have 3.

N,L,M L determines shape/angular momentum
N=1, L=0 s
N=2, L=0 s, 1 p
N=3, L=0 s, 1 p, 2 d
N=4, L=0 s, 1 p, 2 d, 3 f
