I Probability distribution plots

  1. Apr 6, 2016 #1
    hi, so my lecturer decides to give me manic depression by sending me on a wild goose chase. what is the general form of a plot of Ψ, Ψr2 and r2Ψ versus r for both Ψ2s and Ψ2p orbital... am not even sure i said it right

    Not sure why this would make you depressed. Presumably he also derived an explicit expression for those wavefunctions?

    (In any case, you should probably clarify exactly what your lecturer wants -- in writing -- since otherwise it's hard to help you.)

    Strangerep he needs me to draw the p.d curve... to the best of my knowledge i only know if psi squared r squared versus r
