Help, I'm losing it .(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Wavefunction of Hydrogen atom in the ground state is:

[tex]\Psi (r) = Ae^{-r/r_0}[/tex]

Determine A.

I set about trying to obtain the Normalization factor.

[tex]\int \Psi^2 (r) dV = 1[/tex]

[tex]\int \left(A^2 e^{-2r/r_0}\right)(4\pi r^2)dr = 1[/tex]

What limits should I take for this integral?
