## Shrodinger Equation [ENDORSED]

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

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

### Shrodinger Equation

For the upcoming test 3, what exactly do we need to know about Shrodinger's Equation? Is it just concepts or is there calculations we need to know?

We use it, as discussed in class, to understand where orbitals (wave functions) come from.

I also discussed in class we are not using the Shrodinger Equation for any calculations.
That is why no homework problems use the Shrodinger Equation.
