Heisenberg's Equation

Postby 104599631 » Sun Oct 04, 2015 7:56 pm

Does Heisenberg's equation help determine which orbital the electron is located in, or is it just the probability of finding the electron's location?

It just determines the probability of finding the electron's location. I think you use the periodic table to find which orbital an electron is in

Heisenberg's Indeterminacy Equation actually either allows you to calculate the uncertainty in position (delta x) or the uncertainty in momentum (delta p). The probability of finding the electron's location can be found by squaring the wavelength function.

It is an uncertainty equation and therefore only gives you the uncertainty of either position and/or velocity.
