Quantum Mechanical Model



007 – Quantum Mechanical Model

In this video Paul Andersen explains how the quantum mechanical model of the atom refined the shell model. Uncertainty of the position of the electron as well as spin forces chemists to create an improved model. In this model the position of the electron is determined through quantum numbers.
