an electron for which n=4 has more ___ than an electron for which n=2
the modern model of the atom that treates electrons as waves
quantum mechanical model of the atom
states that it is impossible to know both the velocity and the position of a particle at the same time
Heisenbery uncertainty principle
a three dimensinal region around the nucleus representnig the probabiliyy of finding an electron
atomic orbital
originally applied ot the hydrogen atom, it led to the quantum mechanical model of the atom

quantum theory
an orbtal, a three dimensiaonal region aroundt he nucleus indicates
the probable location of an electron
wave functions give only the probability of finding an electron at a given place around the nucleus
what are quantum numbers
