A Theory that Explains Electron Behavior the quantum-mechanical model explains the way electrons exist and behave in atoms helps us understand and predict the properties of atoms that are directly related to the behavior of the electrons electrons are incredibly small a single speck of dust has more electrons than the number of people who have ever lived on earth electron behavior determines much of the behavior of atoms directly observing electrons in the atom is impossible, the electron is so small that observing it changes its behavior QUANTUM MECHANICS EXPLAINS ALL CHEMICAL PHENOMENA!!!
