Schrodingers eq

What do we need to know about schrodingers equation and its relation to wave functions and orbitals?

Valid solutions from Schrodinger's equation give wave functions, psi, that give the energy, E, of the electron (that the wave function is modelling).
These valid wave functions (math functions) are orbitals.

As discussed in class, students need to know where 'orbitals' come from.
