Atomic orbitals: 5g electron density
This page addresses the 5gz2xy and 5gz2(x2 - y2) electron density functions. They are identical in appearance and differ only in direction. See below for links to images of the electron densities of the other 5g orbitals.
"Dot-density" plot of the 5gz2(x2 - y2) electron density function ψ5gz2(x2 - y2)2. Blue represents negative values for the wave function and red represents positive values.
This page displays the electron density of the 5gz2(x2 - y2) 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 "JSmol" image above.
