## Schrodinger Equation

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

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

Could you elaborate further? The general form has no Zs

### Re: Schrodinger Equation

Z is just a symbol that stands for the atomic number or the number of protons of an element.
