Lecture Details

Fundamentals of Physics, II (PHYS 201)

The time-dependent Schrödinger Equation is introduced as a powerful analog of Newtons second law of motion that describes quantum dynamics. It is shown how given an initial wave function, one can predict the future behavior using Schrödingers Equation. The special role of stationary states (states of definite energy) is discussed.
