Atomic orbitals: dsp3 hybrid orbital electron density
"Dot-density" plot of an equatorial dsp3 electron density function. Blue represents negative values for the wave functions and red represents positive values.
"Dot-density" plot of an axial dsp3 electron density function. Blue represents negative values for the wave functions and red represents positive values.
This page displays the electron density of equatorial and axial dsp3 orbitals constructed from 3s/3p/3d combinations as "dot-density" diagrams. High density of dots in a region denotes high electron density.
The form of the plot for the other two equatorial dsp3 hybrids are identical, differing only in orientation. Similarly, the form of the plot for the other axial dsp3 hybrid is identical, differing only in orientation.
You can use your mouse to manipulate the "orbital" in the "JSmol" image above.
