## Shrodinger Equation

$H_{\psi }=E_{\psi }$

1-D: $E_{TOTAL}\psi (x)=E_{k}\psi (x)+V(x)\psi(x)=-\frac{h^{2}}{8\pi ^{2}m}\frac{d^{2}\psi(x)}{dx^{2}}+V(x)\psi(x)$

### Shrodinger Equation

So I know that we dont actually have to know how to do calculations with the equation. So what DO we need to know about the equation conceptually?

For the purpose of this class, what is covered in lecture and discussion on the Schrodinger Equation is the level of understanding that you would need.
And if you can explain HΨ=EΨ, and what the individual term means and represents in chemistry, then you will have a good understanding of it for this class. And also a good foundation in the future.

### Re: Shrodinger Equation

My TA had mentioned during her office hours that we should refer to page 255-256 in the Course reader to determine how much of an understanding we will need of the Schrodinger Equation.

### Re: Shrodinger Equation

I'm pretty sure we don't need to know how to solve Shrodinger's equation because Dr. Lavelle told us to omit Table 2.1, which is the process on how to solve for the three quantum numbers.

### Re: Shrodinger Equation

On page 256, in question 2E, I don't quite understand the question and how it links to the answer, which is "orbitals." Can someone explain this to me?
