Atomic orbitals: 7s electron density
"Dot-density" plot of the 7s electron density function ψ7s2. Blue represents negative values for the wave function and red represents positive values.
This page displays the electron density of the 7s orbital as a "dot-density" diagram. High density of dots in a region denotes high electron density.
You can use your mouse to manipulate the "orbital" in the "Jmol" image above.
- Click on the Jmol text in the above diagram to show a popup menu.
- To rotate about the x and y directions, drag mouse around the image
- To rotate about the z direction (which comes out of the screen towards you), hold shift and drag mouse horizontally
- To zoom, hold shift key down and drag mouse vertically
- To reset the image, hold down shift key and double click ony part of the image not containing dots
- Hold down the mouse button (Windows: left mouse button) while depressing the Shift to resize (zoom) the orbital
- Hold down the mouse button (Windows: left mouse button) and move the mouse to rotate the orbital
- Chime does many other things when displaying molecules, but these are not of much use here
