what is electron cloud and exited state

Asked by jbathini | 30th Aug, 2008, 07:20: PM

Expert Answer:

Picture of an electron state in which the charge is thought of as being smeared out, with the resulting charge density distribution corresponding to the probability distribution function associated with the Schrödinger wave function.

excited state: state in which an atom or molecule picks up outside energy, causing an electron to move into a higher-energy orbital.
