## Homework Statement

For a hydrogen atom in a state with n=2 and l=0, calculate the probability of finding the electron between two spheres of radii r = 5.00a0 and r = 5.01 a0.

## Homework Equations

As stated above, calculate the probability of finding the electron in the given spheres of radii.

## The Attempt at a Solution

Maybe it's something like this?

∫ psi^2 (r) dr, from r = 5.00a to r = 5.01a

= ∫ (1/32π(a^3)) * ((2 - ((r/a)^2))^2) * (e ^ (-r/a) dr, where π means pi.

= (after complicated processes of trying to find the integral) some unsolvable identity! D=
