This question already has an answer here:
- Precise definition of atomic orbital 3 answers
I've heard both of the following:
- An orbital is a region where there's a 90% probability of finding an electron
- An orbital is a region where an electron spends 90% of its time
Are these essentially the same things? Or which one is correct and why? Edit- I've heard both from veritable sources and only need a confirmation not a precise definition.
