Simply atoms – atoms simply
Abstract and Figures
We introduce an atomic model that avoids some of the worst dissonances. According to this model, the electron is not point-like but extended. The square of the wave function is interpreted as the density of a fluid, the electronium. On the basis of the electronium model suggestive pictures and animations of the atom can be generated. We shall see and discuss pictures of the various states of a hydrogen atom as well as animations of transitions from one stationary state to another. We also shall represent the internal movement of the electronium, that is responsible of the angular momentum and the magnetic moment of the atom. From the pictures we shall directly read properties of the various states and the various transitions by only using arguments of classical physics.
