The Quantum Mechanical Model

Today in Chemistry class I learned even more information on the Quantum Mechanical Model. This model is the probability of finding an electron within a certain volume of space surrounding the nucleus. It can be represented as a fuzzy cloud like region. It determines the allowable energies of electrons. ¬†With this model you have a specific estimation as to where the electron is not just a “in this area ” estimation. Also learned a way to find number of electrons in energy levels. That’s by using¬†Principal Energy Levels and Sublevels to help you find out.
