Hi everyone, Assume that we have an electron in the Coulomb field of a proton, whose wave function is specified. How can I find the probability of finding this electron in the ground state of the hydrogen atom? Thank you.
It is the formalism of quantum mechanics? Think of vectors in the plane, wavefuctions are vectors in Hilbert space. The probability for state |a> to be in state |b> is given by: |<a|b>|^2
