Atomic orbitals

The wave nature of electrons in an atom is defined by atomic orbitals, which are mathematical functions.

  • There are four different types of orbitals, each with a different shape, denoted by the symbols s, p, d, and f.
  • The s and p orbitals are the ones that are taken into account since they are the most important in organic and biological chemistry.
  • The nucleus is at the centre of an s-orbital.
  • The p-orbital is dumbbell-shaped.
  • Four of the five d orbitals are cloverleaf-shaped.
  • The fifth d orbital is shaped like elongated dumbbell with a doughnut in the middle.
