thank you for your time. I was wondering about the correlation between volume and probability of finding an electron.
we know that if we move away from the nucleus, we are going to get less probability of finding an electron. this happens with a 1s sub-level.
But when i want to know ( graphically ) the probability of finding an electrons in a 2s sub-level, then the volume comes up.
my professor during the lessons said "The PROBABILITY increases because the PROBABILITY DENSITY decreases, but the VOLUME increases."
he also said that this is true to a certain point, since after that it (volume) starts to decrease.
he then said that the DENSITY OF PROBABILITY is 0 in then nucleus.
what i wrote above it's probably messy. i'm just looking for a better explanation of this concept since i didn't find anything online that talks about density of probability and volume.
