How Schrodinger Equation Relates to Atomic Orbitals

Postby Noh_Jasmine_1J » Mon Oct 22, 2018 2:12 pm

Hi, I am confused on how we make the connection between the Schrodinger Equation and the determination of atomic orbitals. Could someone explain it to me?

Schrodinger's equation provides the connection that wave functions are equivalent to orbitals. It states that the wave function can be described using quantum numbers n, l, and ml, in which a higher energy produces a larger orbital. These wave functions are associated with particular "shapes" of orbitals: s, p, d, and f.
