I have been trying to understand the wave function around an atom..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is it more like a soccer ball where the shell is smooth but is more likely to be found in say the dark areas, or is it more like a golf ball where it is not only angularly undulating, but also radially undulating?
