"ψ represents the particle. In the Copenhagen interpretation, this is the most complete description of a physical system. It describes how a particles wave equation (also called state function) changes with time and space. To find this, you solve the Schrodinger equation. The Schrodinger equation is like the F=ma of quantum mechanics. For the most part, you will just plug in what you need the equation and solving it will yield ψ."
