The wavefunction describing state of a system is,

[tex]\psi (r,\theta ,\phi )=\frac{1}{8\sqrt{\pi }}\left( \frac{1}{a_{0}}%

\right) ^{3/2}\frac{r}{a_{0}}e^{-4/2a_{0}}\sin \theta e^{-i\phi }[/tex]

Find the parity of system in this state.

3. The attempt at a solution

[tex]\psi (-r,\theta ,\phi )=\frac{1}{8\sqrt{\pi }}\left( \frac{1}{a_{0}}%

\right) ^{3/2}\frac{-r}{a_{0}}e^{-4/2a_{0}}\sin \theta e^{-i\phi }

=-\psi (r,\theta ,\phi )[/tex]

odd parity.

I'm wrong.But donno where. Pls help.
