1 - What is Wavefunction Ψ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In the derivation of the equation we treated the total energy of the electron or the particle as the kinetic energy of the particle and the potential energy

2 - Can you give an example of the potential energy of the electron?(Is it like the electric field applied to it from nucleus protons) ?

3 - Does Schrodinger's equation describe the motion of a particle that is subjected to an electric field and behaves as a wave?so the solution of it would give location of the particle w.r.t time ?

The book I'm reading described the motion of the electron as a standing wave...I really can't imagine how that works can you please describe it to me?

Thanks in advance
