I was confused after reading the book about the purpose of wave functions... the book seemed to go more in depth than Professor Lavelle did in the lecture and the homework barely addresses the concept. What specific ideas do we need to understand for the test? Just that wave functions are used to predict the probability of finding an electron in a given area? Do we need to be able to do any calculations with them?
We definitely don't need to do any calculations but the chapter outline that Lavelle posted on his site says "Understand the relationship between Schrodinger's equation, wave functions, and orbitals, " so I would study that.
