Main Question or Discussion Point

Im new to all of this a just started studying quantum mechanics and the time-dependent schrodinger equation. What attributes must be known of a particle to use the schrodinger equation? Also is the wave function considered a constant?

if you are using constant in the normal way, no. The wave function is a function, which I suppose encompasses constants also. [Tex]\psi[/Tex], a state, is a vector on a complex separable Hilbert space.

As far was what particles can be used with the SE, non-relativistic QM is the standard model of mechanics for non-relativistic, low-energy limit systems and has been worked out substantially. So, any particle, or body period, so long as you stay in the realm of non-relativistic mechanics can be "input" into the SE...
