Quantum mechanics often uses mathematical equations to obtain 'probabilities' for the location of subatomic particles because: (Points : 3) the actual position values are too large to measure electron energy values cannot be accurately detected by macroscopic measuring devices the act of measuring the position of a particle as small as an electron would disturb the electron's path definite values of position and energy are not needed on the subatomic level
