The sizes and shapes of the hydrogen atom orbitals was revealed through graphical analysis of the corresponding wave functions. These wave functions also predict areas that the electrons have a zero probability of being found. These areas are known as nodes. Nodes in the hydrogen atom orbitals exist either as spherical (radial) nodes or planar (angular) nodes. In the hydrogen atom, what is the total number of nodes present in a 4f orbital?

How many of the nodes are planar(angular)?
How many of the nodes are spherical (radial)?
