can someone give me an intuitive picture of why electrons don't collide with protons?
I know that electrons move in a sort of cloud, which is our 'orbital', and that they mainly behave like electromagnetic wave because of their very tiny mass. However, how comes they don't collide with the protons? I seriously didn't find a good explanation of these neither by professors I talked to nor by books, so a thousand points from me if you are able to get me into this.
Keep in mind that I am not looking for values, equations, or quantitative explanation of this, for that I have read enough, but for a picture. Think about the subatomic particles as you see them in your mind and describe their relationship.
