## Applying the Shrodinger Equation

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

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

### Applying the Shrodinger Equation

How do you connect the Shrodinger Equation to the actual physical representation of the electron orbitals? Is that outside of the scope of this class?

Hi Daniel,

You should understand that the Schrodinger Equation represents the probability of finding an electron within a given area of electron density.

Hope this helps.

### Re: Applying the Shrodinger Equation

Are we supposed to be able to perform calculations with the Schrodinger Equation?

I don't think we will be asked to perform calculations with the Schrodinger Equation. Instead, we need to know what it represents/means.
