Solution: The s orbital is spherical (nondirectional) because:a. an s orbital has angular nodes.b. at a particular distance from the nucleus, the electron probability is the same in all directions.c. the angula

Solution: The s orbital is spherical (nondirectional) because:a. an s orbital has angular nodes.b. at a particular distance from the nucleus, the electron probability is the same in all directions.c. the angula

Problem

The s orbital is spherical (nondirectional) because:

a. an s orbital has angular nodes.
b. at a particular distance from the nucleus, the electron probability is the same in all directions.
c. the angular wave function of an s orbital depends on the value of l.
d. the angular wave function for all s orbitals is a constant.
e. the angular wave function of an s orbital varies with the principal quantum number (n).
f. the electron probability is zero at the nucleus.

Solution

s orbital

• spherical orbital
• symmetrical - no angular momentum
l & ml value = 0
