Summary of The Electron Cloud Model

The Electron Cloud Model is an atom model where electrons don't move around in a fixed orbit. Instead we don't know exactly where they are. We can only describe their location as probable regions with fuzzy boundaries, which is why it's called a cloud.


Description of The Electron Cloud Model

The Electron Cloud Models' function is to describe a cloud-like region where the electron is likely to be found. Scientists are not for sure that the electron will show up where they think it will be, but they can describe where it should be. The electron cloud represents a history of where the electron has been and where it is likely to be going.
