wave functions/orbitals/quantum numbers

Postby Ashley Tran 2I » Fri Oct 18, 2019 12:11 pm

How are wave functions/orbitals connected to quantum numbers? I'm confused... isn't the wave function about the whole atom and the quantum number refers to individual electrons?

I'm not sure about quantum numbers specifically, but it all just represents the behavior of photons in different scenarios.

Not electrons but photons.
