## Threshold Energy

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

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

### Threshold Energy

Is threshold energy taken into account in the Schrodinger Equation?

### Re: Threshold Energy

Schrodingers equation defines wave functions. Threshold energy has to do with the photoelectric effect as the minimum energy to remove an electron from a metal.

### Re: Threshold Energy

Schrodinger's equation doesn't have anything to do with the photoelectric effect. Therefore, threshold energy would not be used.

### Re: Threshold Energy

understand the concepts but equation wise it does not relate to Schrodingers equation

### Re: Threshold Energy

The Psi here means the probability to find an electron in a certain space while the Psi in the photo electric effect means threshold energy.
