Atomic orbitals: 5d electron density
This page addresses the 5dxy, 5dxz, 5dyz, and 5dx2-y2 wave functions. See the 5dz2 page for information about its electron density.
"Dot-density" plot of the 5dxy electron density function ψ5dxy2. Blue represents negative values for the wave functions and red represents positive values.
This page displays the electron density of the 5dxy orbital as a "dot-density" diagram. High density of dots in a region denotes high electron density.
The plot above is labelled for the 5dxy orbital but the form of the plots for the 5dxz, 5dyz, and 5dx2-y2 orbitals is similar, differing only in orientation. See the 5dz2 page for comparable information about its electron density.
You can use your mouse to manipulate the "orbital" in the "JSmol" image above.
