Part C. Compare the orbital shown in Parts A and B to the orbital shown here in size, shape, and orientation.

Which quantum number(s) would be different for these two orbitals?

Assign quantum numbers and predict characteristics of orbitals based on the contour representation.

Wave functions provide information about an electron's probable location in space. This can be represented by an electron-density distribution diagram, called an orbital. An orbital is characterized by a size, shape, and orientation in space.
