Draw the shape of a p-orbital 


Expert Answer

Step 1

The shape of a p-orbital is to be drawn.

Step 2

Atomic orbitals are regions around the nucleus where the electron is most likely to exist. There are basically 4 types of orbitals-

  1. s- orbital –It is a spherical orbital which can have up to 2 electrons.
  2. p- orbital – It is dumbbell shaped orbital. Three p-orbitals exist arranged at right angles to each other and each p –orbital can have up to 2 electrons. Therefo...
