As discussed in the first part of this paper, a key problem shared by some of the most well-known phenomenological derivations of Schrödinger-like equations is the (arbitrary) choice of the free parameters involved. Specifically, the (universal) constanth that makes the behavior of quantum systems so distinctive is normally introduced into the description by hand. This, however, does not need to be so. As shown in the present paper, the derivation provided by stochastic electrodynamics leaves
