Sorry, i'm new, can someone provide a simplified (i.e. dumbed-down) explanation of the Schrodinger equation? i understand some of the basics of quantum mechanics, and i find this thread fascinating. at the base level, this seemed like a fairly straightforward question, but it seems there are many subtleties i'm not quite grasping. however, it's my understanding that in general, electrons don't just fall into the nucleus because of their rotational velocities, which pull them outwards in a straight line even as their attraction to the nucleus pulls them inward, keeping them in orbit. at least, for larger, less physically confusing objects, that would be the general principle. correct?
