What is the number of orbitals in a d sub-shell?

1 Answer

Answer:

There are total five orbitals in a #d# subshell.

Explanation:

The five #d# orbitals are:

#1.d_(xy)#.
#2.d_(yz)#.
#3.d_(zx)#.
#4.d_(x^2-y^2)#.
#5.d_(z^2)#.

Now, the different orbitals are arranged in different planes of axes such that their names have been assorted to them based on that.
