Explanation:
There are 5 orbitals in the 3
d
set.
4 of
those orbitals are cloverleafshaped and have
2 nodal planes each. That combines to give 8
total nodal planes for the set. The other (5th)
orbital is the
d
z
2
orbital which has 2 nodal
cones, not planes.

Explanation:
A node is a point, a plane or a three dimen
sional region of space where the sign of the
wavefunction changes from positive to nega
tive, (or negative to positive) so it equals zero.
The lowest energy
s
orbital is 1
s
, and this has
no nodes – the wavefunction is always posi
tive. As we go to the next higher value of
n
we add a spherical node, so 2
s
would have one
node, and 3
s
two.
The lowest energy
p
or
bital is 2
p
; it has one nodal plane which cuts
through the nucleus (the two ’lobes’ have op
posite signs).
Again, as we go to the next
higher value of
n
we add a spherical node, so
a 3
p
orbital has two nodes.
