A numerical analysis with computer of the quantum mechanical trajectory of a particle has been proposed within the realm of stochastic mechanics. It has been shown that the present approach with computer graphics illustrates the typical samples of the unseen trajectory of a particle in quantum mechanics. Intuitive meanings of fundamental concepts in quantum mechanics such as the superposition and the interference have been clarified.
