Atomic orbitals: 5g wave function
This page addresses the 5gzx3 and 5gzy3 wave functions. See below for links to images of the wave functions of the other 5g wave functions.
Schematic plot of the 5g wave function ψ5gzx3.
The line graph on the left is a plot of values through the origin out along one of the positive lobes. The surface plot is in the xz plane, with the x direction from right to left, and the z direction from back to front.
The 5g wave function ψ5gz3x and 5g wave function ψ5gz3y orbitals are identical in appearance and differ only in direction. One can be mapped to the other by a 30° rotation about the z-axis. This is best seen when viewing both together.
