Difference Between Orbit and Orbital


ORBIT
ORBITAL
1. It is well-defined circular path followed by electron around nucleus.
2. It represents two dimensional motion of electron around nucleus.
3. The maximum no. of electrons in an orbit is 2n2.
4.  Orbit is circular in shape.
1.It is a region of space around the nucleus where the probability of finding an electron is maximum.
2. It represents three dimensional motion of electron around nucleus.
3. The maximum no. of electrons in an orbital is 2.
4. Orbitals have different shapes.

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

    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.....
