I understand each of the parts that make up the Shrodinger equation, but I cannot seem to find out how to apply it. What types of problems would you apply this equation to? More specifically, what key words should we look for in problems that involve the use of this equation? What exactly would we use this equation to find? Any help is appreciated!!
One finds most use of the Schrodinger equation to all other quantum mechanical objects (bonds, atoms, molecules, orbitals, etc. to name a few). It is noted by , which is a eigenfunction. In here H would typically contain relevant information about the system (energetics, interaction potentials) and E is the eigenvalue to the possible solution . You are not really expected to apply the equation for this course, but this is used in many fields including simulating/understanding molecular interactions and protein folding to name a few.
