## Homework Statement

I am trying solve the 3-D Schrodinger equation for a particle in a cylindrically symmetric potential. If it was the case of spherically symmetric potential, then we can approximate it to a central potential. But what will be the form of the potential in the cylindrically symmetric case? Can any suggest a way to derive it?

## Homework Equations

central potential function is given by,

V=Ze^2/r
