Hi everyone!

Can some please explain to me what exactly Hψ represents in the Schrodinger equation and how it can be equal to Eψ?

Thanks :)

Hψ represents hamiltonian and is equal to the sum of the potential and kinetic energy.

Also, to add on, Hamilton is a double derivative.

Just to add on, this equation is telling us that if you multiply a Hamiltonian by a wavefunction you will get the same wavefunction out multiplied by its energy.

I was told that all we really need to know is that Ψ is the wave property of an electron.
