Atomic orbitals: 2p electron density
"Dot-density" plot of the 2px electron density function ψ2px2. Blue represents negative values for the wave functions and red represents positive values.
This page displays the electron density of a 2p orbital as a "dot-density" diagram. High density of dots in a region denotes high electron density.
The form of the plots for the 2px, 2py and 2pz orbitals is similar, differing only in orientation.
You can use your mouse to manipulate the "orbital" in the "JSmol" image above.
