Atomic Model Standard
We are a sixth grade class studying the history of atomic structure.
Is the Wave Model the current standard for the atomic structure?
Do you mean the Wave Model of DeBroglie? If yes, then that theory is
part of the history leading up to quantum mechanics, but it is not the
current state of the art.
Atomic structure from the theoretic perspective utilized quantum
mechanics and relativistic quantum mechanics, there are many issues
particularly involving the interaction of two of more electrons in an
atom that a currently actively being studied.
