I keep seeing that "An atomic orbital is a mathematical function that describes the wave-like behaviour of either one electron or a pair of electrons in an atom" or something similar. However I can't find what the mathematical function is. Can someone tell me or link me to it please?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
