Atomic orbitals: 3d electron density
This page addresses the 3dz2 electron density. See the 3dxy, 3dxz, 3dyz, and 3dx2-y2 page for information about their electron densities.
"Dot-density" plot of the 3dz2 electron density function ψ3dz22. Blue represents negative values for the wave functions and red represents positive values.
This page displays the electron density of the 3dz2 orbital as a "dot-density" diagram. High density of dots in a region denotes high electron density.
The plot above is for the 3dz2 orbital - see the 3dxy, 3dxz, 3dyz, and 3dx2-y2 page for comparable information about their electron densities.
You can use your mouse to manipulate the "orbital" in the "JSmol" image above.
