Difference Between Orbit and Orbital

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 2n2. The maximum no. of electrons in an orbital is 2.
Orbit is circular in shape. Orbitals have different shapes.

  3. there is a wrong here,degenerate orbitals have 2 electrons,but orbitals,
    s-2
    p-6
    d-10
    f-14

    1. NO, each orbital has 2 electrons but s,p,d,f are sublevels not orbitals

    3. Each 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.

    4. s,p,d,f contains 1,3,5,7 orbitals each

    1. n is orbit number
      in 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.....

    2. its degenerated energy levels that having 2 no of electron ,but orbitals having 2(2L+1) no of electrons where L is azimuthal quantum no

  13. orbit indicates energy level but orbital indicates sub energy level .

  22. So Orbital is only used when we are talking about particles?

    it helped me a lot
    well explained

  25. For orbitals the formula is 2 (2l+1)

  26. according to Rutherford model maximum place of atom is vacant . But concept of s orbital electron belongs all place. how it possible

  27. Hlw Sir Anonymous A.A how r u i hope that u will be fine Sir Anonymous as u tell us that orbitals can accommodate maximum no. of two electrons and i hope that your answer is useful for me but Sir Anonymous i am confuse about the three dimensional of orbitals because how can it be possible that orbitals has three dimensional Sir Aonymous plZzz explain me i can't understand i'll be highly thankfull to u
