## Shrodinger Equation

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

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

### Shrodinger Equation

Is it important to know how to derive this equation? If so, how do you do that?

No, you do not need to be able to derive or solve Schrondinger’s equation for this course

### Re: Shrodinger Equation

Dr. Lavelle said in lecture that it wasn't necessary to know how to derive it for this class.

### Re: Shrodinger Equation

Dr. Lavelle said he wouldn't go into the deriving of the equation because that was out of the scope of the class.
