Why is it important to know about the Shrodinger equation?

Schrodinger's wave function equation basically just uses a wave function to describe an electron in an atom. It uses the concept that an electron, with wavelike properties and indeterminacy in momentum and position, can be described by a mathematical wave function.

Shrodinger's equation gives the probability of finding an electron at a certain position. Thus, it can be used to explain the shape of orbitals and their orientations.

So if this is the case, did this have to do with the question on Test 2 about the probability of finding an electron in the center of an atom?

Will we have to know all of these equations for the midterm/tests?
