Orbitals, shells, subshells, oh my!

  1. Sep 23, 2006 #1
    I'm having trouble understanding anything dealing with the subject of orbitals, shells, subshells, electron configuration, etc. I'm sure no one on this site is going to want to explain it to me in full or anything like that; I'm not expecting it. Can anyone suggest a website that explains this subject matter? I'll continue looking myself but I'm not finding anything that great. So any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
