A hydrogen atom given the following state:

[tex]\psi (r, 0) = A\psi_{100}(r) + (\frac{1}{\sqrt{5}})\psi_{311}(r) + (\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}})\psi_{422}(r)[/tex]

I must normalize this to solve for the normalization constant [tex]A[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Is it just me or does the integral turn out to be as hellish as it seems? Am I supposed to integrate the whole expression or just the first term?
