How do you calculate radial nodes?
To solve for the number of radial nodes, the following simple equation can be used.
- Radial Nodes = n - 1 - ℓ The 'n' accounts for the total amount of nodes present.
- Total Nodes=n-1. From knowing the total nodes we can find the number of radial nodes by using.
- Radial Nodes=n-l-1.
