Schrodinger's equation

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

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

Schrodinger's equation

I just want to clarify. Do we have to know and are we gonna use the schrodinger's equation or not?

Re: Schrodinger's equation

From my understanding I think the ways in which we would be using the equation are more theoretical than practical, so I don't think we will be using it to find values (unless he shows us how to in the next few classes) but rather have a good understanding of what the equation means and what it will result in.

Re: Schrodinger's equation

I'm pretty sure that Prof. Lavelle said that it is important to understand the concepts behind the equation, but we wouldn't be expected to use it for any calculations. Such calculations are grad level work.
