Variational Calculations on the H Atom Consider a system where the answer is known exactly: H atom. Try different variational protocols . Replace the exact 1s wave function (19-1) with a different functional dependence on r , namely (19-2) N normalization constant and α variational constant .

Evaluating the Integral The d/dr operators only operate on the wave function. First differentiate the exponential function multiply by r 2 ; differentiate the product once again ; divide by r 2 ; then finally include the volume element (19-8) = 2 " # $ % & ( ) 3 / 2 2 ( ) 6 r 2 e * 2 r 2 dr 0 + , * 4 2 r 4 e * 2 r 2 dr 0 + , ( ) " 1 2 2 $ % & ( ) * 3 / 2 4 ( ) e " r 2 1 r 2 d dr r 2 d dr % & ( ) * 0 + , e " r 2 r 2 dr =
