Main Question or Discussion Point

How would I show that the most probable values of r for the n-1=l states of hydrogen are

r=n^2a where a is the Bohr radius

I know these values must satisfy the equation d/dr(unl)^2=0

You've assumed l=n=1 which is incorrect.So please reformulate the problem in correct terms...
