It takes four quantum numbers to describe an electron. Additionally, every electron has a unique set of quantum numbers.

It takes four quantum numbers to describe an electron. Additionally, every electron has a unique set of quantum numbers. So, quantum mechanics does not define the path that the electron follows; rather, quantum mechanics works by determining the energy of the electron. Once the energy of an electron is known, the probability
