## double derivative [ENDORSED]

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

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

### double derivative

In questions will we receive H as a function? Is it always sin/cos?

I went through the Schrodinger equation so that students know the (mathematical) origin of orbitals and where they come from.
I will not ask for any additional detail about the Schrodinger equation, other than what we covered in class.

See my class website and details listed in my Outlines. There are no homework problems assigned on the Schrodinger equation.

Use the homework as your guide (and make sure to do the homework problems).

I believe that Dr. Lavelle said that we will not need to use the Schrodinger Equation on any tests, rather, his explanation provides some context as to how we know where electrons are.
