Find the incorrect statement:-

(1) The angular wave function for px orbital becomes zero at all points on the y z plane, (2) Radial function for 2s orbital rapidly decreases as compared to 1s orbital with increase in distance (r), (3) A node is a surface where wave function becomes zero, (4) Radial probability and radial distribution functions are different from each other.

Expert Answer:

Option(2) is wrong. Because The radial function for the 1s orbital, initially increases with increase in distance from the nucleus and reaches a maximum at a distance very close to the nucleus and then decreases.
