Snapshot 1: orbital quantum numbers: principal (), orbital angular momentum () and spin magnetic (); the sum of the odd numbers of each subshell is equal to

Snapshot 2: orbital shapes with

Snapshot 3: radial probability of each orbital with

Snapshot 4: cumulative radial probability of each orbital with ; each cumulative probability tends to 1 as every single probability is normalized
