Solution: The p orbitals. (a) Electron-density distribution of a 2p orbital. (b) Contour representations of the three p orbitals. The subscript on the orbital label indicates the axis along which the

Problem

A)  a) Dot and shape representation of the pz orbitals.  The dot representation shows oval dot scatterplots centered along the vertical z-axis on either side of the x, y, z origin. A shape representation shows two vertical teardrop shapes with the tapered ends near the origin, with a small space between them. B) Shape representation of the pz orbitals.  A shape representation shows two horizontal teardrop shapes centered along the horizontal x-axis on either side of the x, y, z origin, with the tapered ends near the origin and a small space between them. C) c) Shape representation of the py orbitals.  A shape representation shows two diagonal teardrop shapes centered along the diagonal y-axis on either side of the x, y, z origin, with the tapered ends near the origin and a small space between them.

The p orbitals. (a) Electron-density distribution of a 2p orbital. (b) Contour representations of the three p orbitals. The subscript on the orbital label indicates the axis along which the orbital lies.

What label is applied to the 2p orbital aligned along the x axis?
