Shrodinger Equation Relationships?

Postby 905385366 » Mon Nov 04, 2019 9:37 pm

One of Lavelle's topics under Quantum world was "Understand the relationship between Schrodinger's equation (H psi =Epsi), wave functions, and orbitals.
Could somebody explain the Hpsi=Epsi relationship and how that relates to wave functions and orbitals?

Valid solutions from Schrodinger's equation give wave functions, psi, that give the energy, E, of the electron (that the wave function is modelling).
These valid wave functions (math functions) are orbitals.
