This question already has an answer here:
We know that there are many kind of orbitals and we also know that these are regions of maximum probability where an electron can be. Orbitals are plotted generally on XYZ plane.
The doubt arises from:
So here my doubt lies, we show each orbital individually for the sake of understanding but how we visualize these for an atom for eg carbon atom has one 1s orbital, one 2s orbital and 3 2p orbitals but how we show all orbitals in a single atom [1s and (2s,2p) orbitals are of different energy levels] and do all these different orbitals overlap inside the atom? (because we generally consider reference point as origin for plotting any 3d figure) and is the image valid ?
