I wonder if this question will make sense, but I will do my best shot: As the electron orbits around the nucleus, I imagine there are moments when it is too far away, so it starts to be "pulled toward" the nucleus. If it gets too close, it will be "pushed away". If it is in the orbital area, that is where it will be most stable, or balanced and that is why it will mostly stick around there. I am assuming this is the general understanding of how the electron "spins" around the nucleus, at least when viewed as a particle. My question: is there a name for electron's veering off the orbital area? If it goes off too far, it will come back and then probably get too close before it settles back in the orbit area? And I imagine it does this all time, like when riding a bike, one needs to constantly adjust one's balance. Does this even happen this way? And if yes, is there a name for the variance in the trajectory? Many thanks for any feedback!
