Think typical atoms, like Hydrogen, Carbon and Uranium.

The Hydrogen atom  has only one electron.

The Carbon atom has twelve electrons.

The Uranium atom has ninety two electrons.


At present, we usually describe the electrons by a notion of the quantum mechanical cloud.

Then how do you think the differences between the electronic clouds of the above elements?

Are the clouds associated with each element essentially same or decisively different?  If different, how?


Do we really understand the true character of the elecrtronic cloud of the single electron or of the plurality of electrons moving around nucleus?

Do we know the differences in the behavior of cloud of the single electron and of the plurality of electrons when some chemical reaction occurs?
