From what I understand in laymans terms (Since I am a beginner).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In quantum mechanics, particles don’t have classical properties like “position” or “momentum”; rather, there is a wave function that assigns a (complex) number, called the “amplitude,” to each possible measurement outcome. The Born Rule is then very simple: it says that the probability of obtaining any possible measurement outcome is equal to the square of the corresponding amplitude. (The wave function is just the set of all the amplitudes.)

Born Rule:

Couldnt find any diagrams. Could anyone better explain this to me with diagrams?
