Problem 20E

Why does the uncertainty principle make it impossible to predict a trajectory for the electron?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution Step 1 a)According to quantum mechanics an atomic orbital is the space around the nucleus of an atom where the probability of finding the electron is maximum.The model does not have sharp boundaries where the electron distribution becomes zero.Hence it becomes difficult to measure the distance of an outermost electron from the nucleus.
