Electron Cloud

The electron cloud is a region near an atom’s nucleus in which the probability of finding an electron is highest. The electron cloud is not a physical object, but rather a mathematical description of the distribution of electrons in an atom.

The shape of the electron cloud can be described by the atomic orbital, which is a mathematical function that describes the probability of finding an electron at a certain point in space around the nucleus.
