There are two types of nodes: angular nodes and radial nodes. Angular nodes are surfaces where there is no electron density, and radial nodes are spherical shells where there is no electron density. In order to determine the number of nodes total the equation would be n-1. The number of angular nodes is equal to l. To determine how many radial nodes there are, the equation would be n-l-1.
