I'm trying to plot the radial probability function for a hydrogen atom.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the function itself (Psi^{2}*4*pi*r^{2}) my problem is that when I plot the function with angstroms on the x-axis, the y-values are larger than they should be (they look about right if I divide them by the bohr radius in angstroms).

Here's what it should look like when plotted:

I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong here!
