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

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

ReplyDeletethank u sooooooo much

ReplyDeletevery goooooooooooooooooooooooooood

ReplyDeleteThank you so much

ReplyDeleteJAZAKALLAH

ReplyDeletefantastic

ReplyDeleteAwesome, finnaly a real answer
