## wave function

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

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

### wave function

do we need to know the wavefunctions equations, and the potential energy equation? If so can someone explain them to me? and whats their purpose?

I don't believe we are expected to know the equations that are the wave functions. Worth checking with your TA though.

No, Dr. Lavelle said to omit Topic 1C from the textbook.

We don't need to know the wave function equations, just the four quantum numbers.
