Question

# Which of the following pairs of d-orbitals will have electron density along the axes?

A
dz2,dxz
B
dxz,dyz
C
dz2,dx2y2
D
dxy,dx2y2

Solution

## The correct option is D $$d_{z^2}, d_{x^2-y^2}$$From the orbital diagram of d-orbital sit is clear that $$d_{x^2-y^2}$$ has electron density along x- and y-axis. And $$d_{z^2}$$ has electron density along z-axis.Thus $$d_{x^2-y^2}$$ and $$d_{z^2}$$ have electron density along axis.So, the correct option is $$C$$Chemistry
