English: Hydrogen Density Plots for n up to 4. Wavefunctions of the electron in a hydrogen atom at different energy levels.
Quantum mechanics cannot predict the exact location of a particle in space, only the probability of finding it at different locations. The brighter areas represent a higher probability of finding the electron.
