how many orbital orientations are possible in each of the s, p, d, and f sublevels?
b) how does 2s orbital differ from a 1s orbital

  • chem -

    I assume by orbital orientations you are talking about ml. Ml may have orientations from -l to +l in increments of 1 and zero is included. A 2s orbital has a larger diameter than a 1s orbital.
