Equations for Quantum Topics

Postby Lizette Noriega 1H » Wed Oct 16, 2019 4:13 pm

I'm just looking for clarification on the equations that are currently being used in the material we are studying right now. So far, Lavelle has gone over three main equations: the de Broglie equation, Schrodinger's equation, and Heisenberg's indeterminacy equation. Are there any more essential functions or equations in addition to these? I feel like we've been covering a lot in lectures lately so I was to make sure I'm up to date. Thanks!

I think those 3 equations basically cover the fundamentals of quantum mechanics, but there are several other equations that form the intermediate steps of those equations such as c=λv, E=hv, E=pc, p=mv, E(n)=-hR/N^2, λ=h/p, and E(k)=1/2mv^2 that would be helpful to keep in mind.

I have all that plus the Quantum numbers and Atomic orbitals we went over today:

Principle Quantum # (n) - determines energy and size
Angular Quantum # (l) - describes shape
Magnetic Quantum # (Ml) - labels different orbitals of a sub-shell

and then the Spin Magnetic Quantum # (Ms = +1/2 -1/2)

Remember, these four quantum number's specify an atom and their spin state. No 2 electrons in the same atom have the same 4 quantum numbers.

Remember that the magnetic quantum number (ml) is a set of possible values as it could be anywhere from -l to +l.
