WebLecture: Atomic Orbitals
Kotz and Triechel, Chemistry and Chemical Reactivity Chapter 6: Sections 6-7.
6.6 The angular momentum quantum number l is related to the shapes s, p, d, and f of the orbital.
6.7 The direction of electron spin determines the net magnetic properties of the atom.
Atomic orbitals determine how electrons form bonds between atoms. The energy required to move atoms close together is controlled by the number of electrons and their position relative to their "home" atom nucleus and the nuclei of the bonding atoms.
