We have the wave equation in classical mechanics in one dimension in the following way(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[itex]\frac{\partial^2 \psi}{\partial x^2}=c^2\frac{\partial^2 \psi}{\partial t^2}[/itex]

on the other hand we have the Schrodinger equation in quantum mechanics in one dimension in the following way

[itex]i\hbar\frac{\partial\psi}{\partial t}=\mathbf{H}\psi[/itex]

both are called wave functions. Which are the difference between them?
