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...
