**[SOLVED] The Meaning of Schrodingers Equation - In English**

Ok, so I'm thinking that the Schrodinger's box is not a bad place to be right now.

This whole Schrodinger equation has got me in turmoil.

I've searched the world over and can't seem to find an explanation in English about the equation. I actually think it's me being really dense, but I feel better blaming it on the topic

Anyways, so I think I get the idea of [tex] PSI^2 [/tex] this merely tells me the probability of finding the particle somewhere in between a and b. I'm thinking of a one dimensional box, with infinite potential energy at a and b and zero PE inside the box.

So what does [tex] PSI [/tex] tell me? Is [tex] PSI [/tex] relevant? Is it simply the equation for the wave in the box? How does squaring [tex] PSI [/tex] equate to the probability.

Does anyone have a link for the Schrodinger equation in English for a laymen - non Physics major?

My apologies for the idiotic question, but I don't seem to be getting it

Thanks in advanced for any help!
