Hong Le Chemistry 1A March 22, 2009 What do you think? 1. Describe between differences between the 1s and 2s orbitals. 1s orbital Lower energy level Electron density No node and hard to find electron than 2s 2s orbital Higher energy level Electron density 1 node and has well chance to find electron 2. 3. Orbitals with the same energy are said to be degenerate. Which of the orbitals in beryllium are degenerate? There is none obitals in beryllium is degenerate. 4. Describe the differences between the 2s and 2p orbitals.

Unformatted text preview: 2s orbital Sphere shaped Only 1 orientation Lower energy level Lower chance of finding electron 2p orbital Dumbbell shaped 3 orientations: P x , P y and P z High energy level Better probability of finding electron 5. How do the three 2p orbitals differ from one another? How are they similar? The similarities : electron density, the probability to find electron, the shape, energy level, and electron volt. The differences : in orientation...
