About this app

It is impossible to learn about the shapes of orbitals in a page which is 2D but the orbitals aren't 2D. Virtual Orbitals app helps you to visualize the shapes of the orbitals in 3D such that you can understand more and you can sort out your confusions.

This education app help the students to learn chemistry in a smarter way. Students can see the every parts of orbitals by rotating their fingers to screen.

Atoms included: Hydrogen, Helium, Lithium, Boron, Carbon, Oxygen, Neon, Sodium, Silicon, Potassium, Argon, Calcium, Zinc, Iron etc.

While good at showing approximation of orbital shapes and sizes, that is all they are. Their shapes are mathematically wrong and the relative sizes of each of the orbitals are off. The 2P orbital has a slightly smaller average radius than the 2S, same with the 3D being slightly smaller than 3P and 3S. So while this app may be decent for a beginning level chemistry class it cannot be used to explain things like penetration. You also can't see the positive and negative parts of the wave functio...

It is a nice approach. More scope for improvement though exists. The animation in somewhat clumsy. And the overlapping of orbitals makes the atoms of the elements with higher Atomic Numbers very complex to visualise. And why can we only see the valence electrons? Why not the core ones too? Provide more theory. This app is very nice but can be better.

It helps to understand the orbitals more clearly. But still few improvements could be made, such as the box representation of electronic configuration can be included at the corner and when touching the electons from the box it should indicate in the diagram where the electrons are. So please do consider my request and upgrade these things.
