## Schrodinger Equation

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

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

### Schrodinger Equation

what does Ψ mean and how is it used in the equation?

### Re: Schrodinger Equation

That symbol represents the height of a wave at position x,y,z. It is used in the equation as wave function (orbital) representing e-.

### Re: Schrodinger Equation

That is the symbol psi and represents the height of the wave and the state of the wave-particle.
