Solution: Draw 90% probability contour (with axes) for the  pz orbital.

Problem

Draw 90% probability contour (with axes) for the  pz orbital.

Solution
  • Recall that a p orbital is a lobed or dumbbell shaped orbital
  • The p orbital lies depending on their axis, in this case we have a p orbital at z axis
  • The 90% probability contour for a pz orbital will appear as:
