## 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

Why is it important to know about the Shrodinger equation?

### Re: Shrodinger Equation

Schrodinger's wave function equation basically just uses a wave function to describe an electron in an atom. It uses the concept that an electron, with wavelike properties and indeterminacy in momentum and position, can be described by a mathematical wave function.

### Re: Shrodinger Equation

Shrodinger's equation gives the probability of finding an electron at a certain position. Thus, it can be used to explain the shape of orbitals and their orientations.

### Re: Shrodinger Equation

So if this is the case, did this have to do with the question on Test 2 about the probability of finding an electron in the center of an atom?

### Re: Shrodinger Equation

Will we have to know all of these equations for the midterm/tests?
