Derivation of the schrodinger equation

Any mistakes in my derivation?

Thanks.

Sort by:

It seems you wrote $$P$$ when you meant $$K$$ ($$K = -\frac{\hbar^2}{2m} \nabla^2?$$)?

Other than that it's fine, though I don't think this is a "derivation". Unless you can argue from first principles that the representation for momentum should be given by $$-i\hbar\nabla$$, it is just a declaration and some substituting. Staff · 1 year ago

yes, i messed up on that
