Can someone please explain again how this equation relates to sin and cos? Thanks

Schrodinger basically used a wave function to describe an electron so he could come up with a general equation for finding the energy of an electron instead of having just an empirical equation like the Rydberg equation.

Wave functions are basically talking about the sin/cos functions. And, the derivative of sin(x) -> cos(x), and derivative of cos(x) -> -sin(x), etc.

Hopefully that made sense!
