ORBIT |
ORBITAL |

It is well-defined circular path followed by electron around nucleus. | It is a region of space around the nucleus where the probability of finding an electron is maximum. |

It represents two dimensional motion of electron around nucleus. | It represents three dimensional motion of electron around nucleus. |

The maximum no. of electrons in an orbit is 2n^{2}. |
The maximum no. of electrons in an orbital is 2. |

Orbit is circular in shape. | Orbitals have different shapes. |

very good

ReplyDeletethanks it was very useful

ReplyDeletereally very useful

ReplyDeletethank u very nice

ReplyDeletenice one

ReplyDeletethanks a lot

ReplyDeleteits really good and helpful

ReplyDeleteUseful ..

ReplyDeletethnx

ReplyDeletethere is a wrong here,degenerate orbitals have 2 electrons,but orbitals,

ReplyDeletes-2

p-6

d-10

f-14

yes u r right

DeleteNO, each orbital has 2 electrons but s,p,d,f are sublevels not orbitals

Deleteeat shit yo youre a faggot

DeleteEach orbital holds 2 electrons. Each sublevel has a different number of orbitals. So the number of electrons in a sublevel are equal to # of orbitals x 2. P: 3 orbitals. Each holding 2 electrons, so 3x2 = 6 total electrons in sublevel p.

Deletes,p,d,f contains 1,3,5,7 orbitals each

DeleteI really appreciate

DeleteI really appreciate

DeleteIts very helpful.

ReplyDeleteWhat is n ??

ReplyDeleten is orbit number

Deletein 1st orbit n is 1 and hence it can hold 2 electrons

in 2nd orbit n is 2 and hence it can hold 8 electrons

the same way,

3rd orbit n=3 electrons=18

4th orbit n=4 electrons=32 and so on.....

thank u very much

ReplyDeletegooooooooood

Deletethank u sooooooo much

ReplyDeletevery goooooooooooooooooooooooooood

ReplyDeleteThank you so much

ReplyDeleteJAZAKALLAH

ReplyDeletefantastic

ReplyDeleteAwesome, finnaly a real answer

ReplyDeletei like dis

ReplyDeletethank u

ReplyDeletewell explained..

ReplyDeleteThank u soooo much

ReplyDeleteur the boss..!

ReplyDeletecan not you provide me a video related with orbit and orbitals

ReplyDeleteThanks it helped me to cheat, i took it to the examination hall

ReplyDeletenice

Deletegod

ReplyDeletethank u

ReplyDeleteTHANK u...so much...!!!

ReplyDeletethank u

ReplyDeleteorbit indicates energy level but orbital indicates sub energy level .

ReplyDeletethANkuUu soOo muCH ....

ReplyDeleteThanxx.... it'll really help me....

ReplyDeleteThanks it's very helpful

ReplyDeleteThanks it's very helpful

ReplyDeleteThanks it's very helpful

ReplyDeleteBut orbit can be both circular or elliptical...

ReplyDeletethanks for helping

ReplyDeleteGood info, ty

ReplyDeleteThanks its very good

ReplyDeletegood

ReplyDeleteSaving the time of students.

ReplyDeleteGood and perfect difference in a easy way.

Good for study people

ReplyDeletethanks its usefull

ReplyDeleteNise

ReplyDeletetnx..... khub kaje lagce ata

ReplyDeleteNise jab mun koop it up ��

ReplyDeleteSo Orbital is only used when we are talking about particles?

ReplyDeletevery useful one thank you alot

ReplyDeletethanks

ReplyDeletethanks
