Atomic Orbitals and Orbital Shapes Video

Atomic Orbitals and Atomic Shapes Orgo Video Leah FischIntro to Orgo Series: Video 3
This tutorial video is designed to help new and incoming organic chemistry students build a solid foundation for organic chemistry
Topics discussed include an overview of the atomic orbitals including their shapes, sub-orbitals, and the number of electrons found in each. The orbitals are also related to their placement on the table leading into the topic of electron configurations.

  1. So is there more than one S orbital? S is the configuration, or shape, of the orbital, and 2s envelops 1s, 1p, 1f, and 1d?

  2. why is electron not counted in mass.
    why doesn,t it have weight
