If electrons were visualized as a clouds and not points, could this be analogous to a continuous probability density function?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In essence, for a givenxthere is a specific ordinate ory. The probability of achieving that particularxis zero but the probability of achieving anything between x -[tex]\epsilon[/tex] and x + [tex]\epsilon[/tex] is the area between these two points (x - tex]\epsilon[/tex] and x + [tex]\epsilon[/tex] with the total area under the curve as 1.

Am I onto anything here?
