An explanation for using wave functions to describe electrons should be provided. Concept Introduction: Electrons behave as particles and waves. The Bohr’s model treats electrons as particles moving around the nucleus in fixed orbits. The quantum mechanical model treats electrons as waves spread around the nucleus in regions called as orbitals.
