4.3.2.1 Solution hydb-a

**Question:**

Use the tables for the radial wave functions and the spherical harmonics to write down the wave function

for the case of the ground state

Check that the state is normalized. Note:

**Answer:**

The tables show that

The total probability of finding the particle integrated over all possible positions is, using the techniques of volume integration in spherical coordinates:

or rearranging

giving

which is one as required.
