Shells & subshells!

  1. Sep 1, 2005 #1
    hi guys.

    Today we were doing the shells and subshells in school and I didn't really get the damn thing. I tried to search it on google but had no luck by my side :(

    Could someone explain how it is or provide a link plz.

    I found agood explanation of this in 'The Periodic Kingdom' by Peter Atkins There is a link to similar diagrams here :

    There are also various programs that you can download to give 3d visualisations of electron shells to run on your computer since personally I find it impossible to visualise anything that complex without really good animation .
