so im finishing up my studies of intro to quantum mechanics, and this is not in my book and looking at previous exams i have to know this for single electron atoms/ions.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

one of the problems was somethin like

"the wave function of an electron is the overlap of the orbitals:

Ψ=aΨ_{1s}+i/√3Ψ_{2p}+¾Ψ_{3s}

find avg energy. what is the probability of measuring it?"

i dont want help solving this, can you just point me to an website/book that covers this? thank you
