The number of nodal surfaces passing through the nucleus of the 4 f orbitals is to be identified. Concept introduction: Nodal surfaces: the surface which passing through nucleus where there is zero chance of finding electrons. The values of l (azimuthal quantum number) when the principal quantum number is n are from 0 to ( n − 1 ) . Each value of l indicates subshell and for l = 0 , 2 and 3 represents s, d and f subshells.

Solutions

Chapter 6, Problem 46PS

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The number of nodal surfaces passing through the nucleus of the 4f orbitals is to be identified.

Concept introduction:

Nodal surfaces: the surface which passing through nucleus where there is zero chance of finding electrons.

The values of l (azimuthal quantum number) when the principal quantum number is n are from 0 to (n1). Each value of l indicates subshell and for l=0,2 and 3 represents s, d and f subshells.

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The number of nodal surfaces passing through the nucleus of the 2p orbitals is to be identified.

Concept introduction:

Nodal surfaces: the surface which passing through nucleus where there is zero chance of finding electrons.

The values of l (azimuthal quantum number) when the principal quantum number is n are from 0 to (n1). Each value of l indicates subshell and for l=0,2 and 3 represents s, d and f subshells.

(c)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The number of nodal surfaces passing through the nucleus of the 6s orbitals is to be identified.

Concept introduction:

Nodal surfaces: the surface which passing through nucleus where there is zero chance of finding electrons.

The values of l (azimuthal quantum number) when the principal quantum number is n are from 0 to (n1). Each value of l indicates subshell and for l=0,2 and 3 represents s, d and f subshells.
