What kind of information about an electron in an atom is obtained from its wave function?

The square of the amplitude of the electron wave, i.e, ${{φ}^{2}}$ at any point gives probability of finding an elec .t that point. Since, the region around the nucleus which represents the electron density at different points is called an orbital, hence the wave function for an electron in an atom is called orbital wave function.
