What is the Heisenberg uncertainty principle? What is the Schrödinger equation?

Hoisenberg wricertainty principle: It is imposectible to know both the Thomeritum p and the position of a particle with certaints simultancously at the same time. Sclirodinger equation describes the behavior and energies of submicroscopic particles in gemeral. It is an equation analogous to Newton's law of motion for macroseopic objects.

In chemistry and physics, electronic structure is the way the electrons of an atom are arranged in relationship to the nucleus. It is determined by the subshells the electrons are bound to, which are in turn determined by the principal quantum number ("n") and azimuthal quantum number ("l"). The electrons within an atom are attracted to the protons in the nucleus of that atom. The number of electrons bound to the nucleus is equal to the number of protons in the nucleus, which is called the atomic number ("Z"). The electrons are attracted to the nucleus by this mutual attraction and are bound to the nucleus. The electrons within an atom are attracted to each other and this attraction determines the electron configuration. The electron configuration is described by the term symbol, which is the letter used to identify each subshell.

In physics, the wave–particle duality is the concept that every object or process, no matter how large or how small, behaves as both a wave and a particle. The wave–particle duality is one of the central concepts in quantum mechanics.

Okay, So the Heisenberg uncertainty principle is kind of a paradox, basically says that the more specific you know, the location of a subatomic particle, the less specific you know, it's mo mentum or velocity. So, basically, if you are, let's say, 100% positive. In a certain instance of time where an electron is in its orbit around a nucleus you are. You also have a 0% knowledge, or you have no possible idea how fast it is going. Then, if you know how fast it is, we know the Momenta because the massive electrons cost. So the in that hasn't burgers or any principle is shown through the equation of the ah, the Schrodinger Equation, which talks about the wave form the way function of any quantum mechanic system. So basically the way function of a tiny, tiny, tiny particle. And it's comparable to Newton's laws of motion for normal sizer our sized things. So this is basically comparable to the laws of motion for a king Pong ball flying through the air. Except this is in terms of subatomic particles, which obey slightly different rules. This equation is broken, is further broken down into several several equations where these size are functions and this is the sign for partial derivative. So basically this this form could be expanded very, very much so to figure out according to, uh, you have certain, if you know certain things that you got to figure out well, the position off some while particle. But in doing so, you would not know at all the velocity or momentum and vice versa. If you know the exact speed of something in a certain moment, you have no idea where it ISS. So this is, ah, kind of. It's a pretty advanced thought process.
