…to determine the exact position of an electron It is used as the charge density for many applications in atomic physics and chemistry. The charge density is the charge per unit volume in a body where the charge is distributed (not located at point charges). Charge density appears in the differential form of the first of Maxwell's equations, and thus determines electric field. The charge density of a cation affects the extent of covalent bonding
