## Bohr Equation

$H_{\psi }=E_{\psi }$

1-D: $E_{TOTAL}\psi (x)=E_{k}\psi (x)+V(x)\psi(x)=-\frac{h^{2}}{8\pi ^{2}m}\frac{d^{2}\psi(x)}{dx^{2}}+V(x)\psi(x)$

### Bohr Equation

Why is the Bohr equation considered empirical?

### Re: Bohr Equation

I think it is because it was derive from observation, and theory did not explain what was being observed in experiments, so he didn't know why the equation work but it worked...
