What is the Electron Cloud?

The Electron Cloud is a model created by Edwin Schrodinger based off the observations of Neils Bohr. It shows the electrons moving around the nucleus in a cloud formation rather than a set orbit.

Difference between Bohr Model and Electron Cloud Model

In Bohr's model, he stated that electrons move around the nucleus in a set orbit. In the Electron Cloud, Schrodinger fixed this theory by saying that the electrons do move around the nucleus, but in random pattern.
