## General Question on Schrodinger Equation

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

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

The Schrodinger Equation is a mathematical equation that represents a wave. It can be solved, and a solution to the equation is an orbital. You will not need to know how to solve the equation for this class.
