How would we use the wave function equation?

Schrodinger's equation? I do not think we have to know how to use the equation, just the conceptual idea and what the equation tells us, which is the probability of finding an electron in a certain area.

you would use the wave function to describe an electron with wavelike properties and indeterminacy in momentum and position in an atom. it is also the radial wavefuntion times the angular wave function. this shows how orbitals change with angles and radii
