(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] Energies of a Hydrogen Atom

1. I have a question on the ratio of energies of an electron in a hydrogen atom. It seems quite simple, but yet seem to be struggling...can anyone help?

2. The question is: "calculate the most probable value of the electron-orbit radius, r, and the ratio of the electron kinetic energy to its potential energy in the ground state of the hydrogen atom"

3. So far i have found the most probable value of the electrons orbit radius, by taking the |[tex]\Psi[/tex]|^2 and multiplying it by the volume element, all in spherical polars. What i am struggling on is the ratio of the energies.

Thanks EK
