I was looking at the equation sheet on Dr. Lavelle’s website and I got confused on the last equation. I don’t remember if I saw this equation in lectures but I’m wondering what this equation is solving for? Also, since it’s on the equation sheet, would we use this on the midterm? Thank you!
Yeah, if there are equations on the Equation Sheet that we haven't gone over, then I wouldn't worry about it. However, if he happens to include a question involving this equation, I am sure he will give us all of the numbers we need to solve the problem.
I think that the equation sheet is the same one we'll be allowed to use for the midterm and final, so we will probably cover this later in the quarter. It wouldn't be fair to ask us to use an equation if we don't know what they are, so just ignore it for now.
That's Schrodinger's equation, except the side of the equation that we learned as Hψ is expanded to show the double derivative and potential energy terms. I doubt we'll need to use it for the midterm though. Hope this helps!
