Shapes  of s and p orbitals

Shapes  of s and p orbitals

s orbital can have only one possible orientation (as it’s m quantum is zero), it is spherical in shape i.e., in an s orbital the electron distribution is symmetrical around the nucleus in all directions. However the size of s orbital depends on principal quantum number. Large n means large size. Thus 3s orbital is larger than 2s orbital.
