7.1 Application of the Schrödinger Equation to the Hydrogen Atom 7.2 Solution of the Schrödinger Equation for Hydrogen 7.3 Quantum Numbers 7.4 Magnetic Effects on Atomic Spectra–The Zeeman Effect 7.5 Intrinsic Spin 7.6 Energy Levels and Electron Probabilities CHAPTER 7 The Hydrogen Atom The atom of modern physics can be symbolized only through a partial differential equation in an abstract space of many dimensions. All its qualities are inferential; no material properties can be directly attributed to it. An understanding of the atomic world in that primary sensuous fashion…is impossible. - Werner Heisenberg Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976)

The wave function must be a function of all three spatial coordinates. Now consider momentum as an operator acting on the wave function in three dimensions: 6.5: Three-Dimensional Infinite-Potential Well So the three-dimensional Schrödinger wave equation is
