Main Question or Discussion Point
If I am not wrong, the Michio says that an electron (not the parts of an electron) can be found in many places at the same time. Is that right?Michio Kaku said:Because of uncertainty, the electron does not exist at any single
point, but exists in all possible points around the nucleus. This
electron “cloud” surrounding the nucleus represents the electron being
many places at the same time
If that is the case, consider a gaussian surface enclosing the electron at many places at the same time, then the charge inside the surface will be integral multiple of e (i.e ne, where n>1). But, we know that charge on electron is just e.
This doesn't seem to allow electron to exist in many places at the same time. So, can an electron really exist in many places at the same time?
