Schrodingers on midterm

Postby Jenny Chau 1I » Tue Oct 27, 2020 4:27 pm

Since we don't really have to do any calculations for Schrodingers equation on the midterm, what should conceptually be known about it?

I think some things to remember would be that the wavefunction gives us the energy of the electron, Ψ represents the height of a wave at a position, and (Ψ)^2 represents the probability of finding an electron. Also, the H (hamiltonian) gives us a double derivative of the sin/cos wave function.

I think the most important conceptual aspect of Schrodinger's equation is just how it led to the wave functions and orbitals that we use for electron configuration and other electronic structure. We don't need to know the complicated math stuff!
