Schrodinger Equation

Postby Savannah Torella 1L » Sun Nov 01, 2020 9:44 pm

I was just wondering if anyone had an example of a word problem where the Schrodinger equation would be used. I'm having trouble understanding its application to current questions we have been approaching.

I had a similar question as well. It is confusing how Planck's constant may be introduced into this equation as I have seen before yet it is not within the original equation

I've been wondering the same. How would we compute the variables, which variables would be given, and where would we see this equation being used and what for?

I feel that the actual math operations behind Shrodinger's equation are well beyond the scope of a general chem class. I think we should focus on the conceptual idea behind what the equation stands for including that electrons can be described by a wave function which then describes electron orbitals.

Hey if anyone can explain this equation to me, it would be super helpful. I am completely and utterly lost whenever i see this equation on anything. It not like there is a pice i dont understand its the whole thing.

I noticed that there are two different constants, why and when would we use both of them.
