This Molyorbital™ orbital set contains sufficient parts to make 14 easy to self-assemble atomic orbitals. It is ideal for learning about the shapes and orientations of atomic orbitals. Pink and purple coloured pear shaped lobes represent the + and – wave equation phases of the p and d atomic orbitals. The atomic nuclei are represented by opaque white spheres. Each model comes with its own individual colourless transparent base for display purposes. Approximate model heights including base are: s-orbital 5cm, p-orbital 9cm, and d-orbital 8cm.
Contents of the Molyorbital™ atomic orbitals kit
The contents are contained within a plastic storage box. The 81 components are enough to make the following models
- 1s orbital
- 2s orbital
- the three 2p orbitals
- the five d-orbitals
- a model showing the unhybridised s and three 2p orbitals
- the two sp hybrid orbitals
- the three sp2 hybrid orbitals
- the four sp3 hybrid orbitals
The Molymod™ system is the original, unique, dual-scale system of high quality low-cost molecular models. These enormously popular sets are ideal for college use but are also used by scientists all over the world. The Molyorbital™ sets complement the Molymod® sets also available from within this shop.
Important notice: Molymod® and Molyorbital™ molecular model and orbital products are scientific educational and visualization aids, and consequently are not suitable for children less than 10 years old.
With each order we’ll send you a free silky periodic table bookmark and a free glossy laminated postcard sized periodic table for your noticeboard!
