Unformatted text preview: n,l,m = n,n 1, m for the hydrogen atom. (a) Show that n,n 1, m 1 r 2 n,n 1, m = 2 2n 1 n 3 a 2 (b) Calculate n,n 1, m r 2 n,n 1, m 4. (Griffiths, Problem 4.14) What is the most probable value of r , in the ground state of hydrogen? (The answer is not zero!) Hint: First you must figure out the probability that the electron would be found between r and r+dr....
