MSE 310/ECE 340Dept. of Materials Science & Engineering Electrical Properties of MaterialsFall 2011/Bill Knowlton 1 Problem Set 4 Solutions (Show all work for all problems) 1.In class, we considered the radial wave function of an electron in a hydrogen atom given by: orarea.Explain the symmetry (i.e., geometry) that the electron experiences. That is, if you were to normalize the wave function, what coordinate system would you use? Explain. Since a hydrogen atom is a sphere, the easiest coordinates to use to integrate over a sphere would be to use spherical or polar coordinates.
